The sleepy seaside village of Porthaven hides a mystery . . .

Mia's grandad has vanished and nobody knows why. When Mia and her mum go to support her grandma, Mia makes friends with local girl, Dee. But why does Dee seem so out of reach? Why does she claim to be facing violent storms when Mia sees only sunny skies?

And can Mia solve the mystery and find her grandad before time and tide forever wash away his future?

A night of storms. A lifetime of secrets. A week to find the truth.

It's an exciting adventure novel with a slightly paranormal twist that pre-teens will love. -- Cheryl Pasquier * Madhouse Family Reviews Blog *
There's an element of magic about the book which I loved and I thought it was beautifully written... North of Nowhere is the perfect book to read on a stormy night, curled up indoors with the fire crackling. I was gripped by Mia's story and the mystery of Luffsands. This was a truly magical and captivating read which I will definitely be recommending to everyone I know. * A Dream of Books Blog *
I can't see how any young reader can resist North of Nowhere. * Bookwitch Blog *
Suitable for readers aged 9+, the story was inspired by Hallsands, the South Devon village that collapsed into the sea on a stormy night in January 1917. * Choice Magazine *
...although it has magical elements, this is first and foremost a story about friendship and families, in particular the relationships between children and grandparents.' * BOOK TRUST *
