Phosphorescence by Raffaella Barker
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Mystery, mayhem and romance by the sea in a funny, insightful first novel for teenagers from a best-selling adult writer. Fourteen-year-old Lola Jordan feels like a useless misfit among her cool city classmates. Until this term she's lived a quiet country life on the windswept saltmarshes of north Norfolk. She's mortified when her lyrical essay on phosphorescence is read out in front of the whole school. But much worse is the ensuing geography trip to her childhood home. Camping on the famous island nature reserve run by her father, a bunch of designer-clad teenagers, including the boy of Lola's dreams, runs wild. But in the midst of chaos, excitement, danger and snogging in the sparkling midnight sea, Lola learns that the best way to belong is to be an individual.
