When she was a little girl, passing her summers in the heat of coastal Australia, Evie Wyld was captivated by sharks by their innate ruthlessness, stealth, and immeasurable power and they have never released their hold on her imagination. From the award-winning author of All the Birds, Singing, here is a deeply moving graphic memoir about family, love, loss, and the irresistible forces that, like sharks, course through life unseen, ready to emerge at any moment.
Black-and-white illustrations throughout.
