About the publication

A gripping adventure centred around the mystery of Mia's missing grandfather.

When Mia's grandfather disappears, Mia and her mother immediately rush down to stay with her grandmother and offer support. With no friends and no internet access in the little seaside village where her grandparents live, Mia is bored and lonely--until she makes friends with Dee, the daughter of a fisherman from a nearby island, and Peter, who is on holiday with his parents. But Mia's grandad is still missing, and actually meeting face to face with Dee is proving surprisingly difficult. Mia becomes determined to find out what's going on, but the truth is much more mysterious than she ever imagined...

Reviews

I can't see how any young reader can resist North of Nowhere.

Bookwitch

Although it has magical elements, this is first and foremost a story about friendship and families, in particular the relationships between children and grandparents.
