Minnow is different from the other girls in her town and there's plenty to set her apart: the blossom of pale scars which lie beneath Minnow's delicate ears, the fact that she has an affinity with the water which leaves people speechless, and that once - she is sure - in deep, deep water, her body began to glow like a sunken star. When her mum gets into trouble and is taken from their boat in the dead of night, Minnow is alone with one instruction: sail to Reykjavik to find your grandmother, she will keep you safe. Minnow has never sailed on her own before, but the call of the deep is a call she's been waiting to answer her whole young life. Perhaps a girl who is lost on land can be found in the Wild Deep. The stunning middle grade debut from Cerrie Burnell

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Perfect bathtime reading for wannabe mermaids! Cerrie Burnell's lyrical, dreamy writing is like a love song to the sea in this voyage of adventure and self-discovery. The call of the deep will lure you into a richly-imagined world." * Michelle Harrison, Author *
"A bold adventure in a hugely imaginative world. The Girl with the Shark's Teeth sings like the sea!" * Sophie Anderson, Author *
"The Girls with the Shark's Teeth glitters with fairytale magic: maps made of moonlight, pirate-hook mothers whose gaze can 'knock eagles from the sky' and fierce young gatekeepers shaking up seas. Wild and wonderful storytelling from one of the loveliest authors in the business." * Abi Elphinstone, Author *
"Burnell makes her middle-grade debut with a vividly imagined magical adventure starring a 12-year-old girl with an irrestistible pull to the water." * Fiona Noble, The Bookseller *
"The lyrical, breathless prose and relentless onslaught of new characters and images - each more bizarre and wonderful than the last - make this a cross between China Mieville and Liz Kessler." * Booktrust *
