‘You are not ready my child. Be patient. Your time will come.’

Deep beneath the sea, off the cold Irish coast, Gaia is a young mermaid who dreams of freedom from her controlling father. On her first swim to the surface, she is drawn towards a human boy. She longs to join his carefree world, but how much will she have to sacrifice? What will it take for the little mermaid to find her voice?

The Little Mermaid is reimagined through a searing feminist lens, featuring the stunning, scalpel-sharp writing and world building that has won Louise her legions of devoted fans./p>

West-Cork born Louise O'Neill exploded on to the publishing scene in 2014 with her debut Only Ever Yours, quickly following up on its success with the uncompromising drama Asking For It. The Surface Breaks prompted a ripple of excitement following its announcement, promising a fresh take on the story O’Neill regards as ‘a story that, in many ways, shaped me into the adult I am today.’

Not suitable for younger readers, contains adult content.

“Under the sea!”

Louise O'Neill has given this classic fairy tale a modern twist. We are all familiar with the original story but this seems somehow darker and more dramatic. The natural world shines through. Gaia has always felt... More
