On Midnight Beach by Marie-Louise Fitzpatrick



ISBN: 9780571355594 Category: Tags: , ,


In this beautiful epic coming-of-age novel an old tale is rewoven as a stunning YA story by well-known Irish author/illustrator Marie-Louise Fitzpatrick. I kept clear of Dog Cullen. Till the summer we turned seventeen the summer the dolphin came to Carrig Cove . . . Donegal 1976 When a dolphin takes up residence in Carrig Cove Emer and her best friend Fee feel like they have an instant connection with it. Then Dog Cullen and his sidekick Kit turn up and the four friends begin to sneak out at midnight to go down to the beach daring each other to swim closer and closer to the creature . . . But the fame and fortune the dolphin brings to their small village builds resentment amongst their neighbours across the bay and the summer days get longer and hotter . . . There is something wild and intense in the air. Love feels fierce old hatreds fester and suddenly everything feels worth fighting for. ‘An entirely compelling yet beautiful novel that captures the essence of growing up. I loved it’ Sarah Crossan ‘An instant classic. Fitzpatrick breathes modern magic into an ancient legend. A wonderful book’ Eoin Colfer
