Our UK book fairies had a treat in store today as they hid 80 copies of The Surface Breaks by Louise ONeill in cities up and down the UK!
Book Fairies searched for beautiful places but also specifically, watery, places to hide this reimagining of The Little Mermaid! Did you spot a copy?
About The Surface Breaks:
Think you know the story of the Little Mermaid?
Think again… Deep beneath the sea, off the cold Irish coast, Gaia is a young mermaid who dreams of freedom from her controlling father.
On her first swim to the surface, she is drawn towards a human boy.
She longs to join his carefree world, but how much will she have to sacrifice?
What will it take for the little mermaid to find her voice?
Hans Christian Andersen’s original fairy tale is reimagined through a searing feminist lens, with the stunning, scalpel-sharp writing and world building that has won Louise her legions of devoted fans.
A book with the darkest of undercurrents, full of rage and rallying cries: storytelling at its most spellbinding.
Didn’t find a book?
Don’t worry! You can always find a copy in a good bookshop, or you can order The Surface Breaks online with Hive Books – a site which supports independent bookshops and also…. ships pretty much worldwide!
