Colourful, raw, brave, rich and fantastical - this mermaid tale is not for the faint-hearted. Looking after a naked girl he found washed up under Hastings pier isn't exactly how Rory had imagined spending his sixteenth birthday. But more surprising than finding her in the first place is discovering where she has come from. Lorali is running not just from the sea, not just from her position as princess, but her entire destiny. Lorali has rejected life as a mermaid, and become human. But along with Lorali's arrival, and the freak weather suddenly battering the coast, more strange visitors begin appearing in Rory's bemused Sussex town. With beautifully coiffed hair, sharp-collared shirts and a pirate ship shaped like a Tudor house, the Abelgare boys are a mystery all of their own. What are they really up to? Can Rory protect Lorali? And who from? And where does she really belong, anyway?

MEDIA REVIEWS
I'm just a few chapters in but already smitten by LORALI ... it's just as crazy, unpredictable as you'd expect. * The Bookseller (Children's Previews) *
Dockrill has used her unique writing style to great aplomb, creating a fantasy world that is still absolutely current and entirely absorbing ... A fantastic read that is raw, beautiful and bursting with fiercely gorgeous prose. * We Love This Book *
I love Laura's writing. This book turns your brain into an octopus of words. -- Gemma Cairney * BBC *
Filled with mermaids, pirates, bird-type-women and plenty of adventure, the plot of Lorali sucks you in immediately and keeps you reading, providing plenty of unexpected turns along the way! * The Cosy Reader *
It's a book that made me giggle, cry, and flail, which for me is the mark of an intense read. * Huxtales *
Equal parts humour, tension and drama, I was swept away by this story. * Golden Books Girl *
The writing style is poetic, enchanting and completely beautiful * Ms Bookland *

“Wish I Loved It”

Oh I had so much hope for this book! So so much hope! I mean, everything was there; the premise was great, the characters were well rounded and defined, and the cover art? Amazing. But where did it go so wrong?
Okay,... More

“Mermaids! Dapper pirates! Embarrassing teenage boys! Cute and emotionally devastating.”

Hot Key Books had kindly sent along my copy due to its eye catching shiny cover, and also mermaids.

Lorali is a mermaid Princess who, as Ariel did before her, decides that her time underwater has come to an end,... More

An imaginative story about a mermaid, her mer family and the link with a very ordinary town.
