'If you read only one book this year, make sure it's this' Sunday Times
'I loved Past the Shallows' Kevin Powers, author of The Yellow Birds

Everyone loves Harry. Except his father.

Joe, Miles and Harry are growing up on the remote south coast of Tasmania. The brothers' lives are shaped by their father's moods - like the ocean he fishes, he is wild and unpredictable. He is a bitter man, with a devastating secret.

Miles does his best to watch out for Harry, the youngest, but he can't be there all the time. Often alone, Harry finds joy in the small treasures he discovers, in shark eggs and cuttlefish bones. In a kelpie pup, a mug of hot chocolate, and a secret friendship with a mysterious neighbour.

But sometimes small treasures, or a brother's love are not enough.
