When Amir’s city in Syria is bombed as civil war erupts, his father makes a fateful decision. Amir soon finds himself on a perilous journey by land and sea, with little hope of reaching his destination. Milly is still reeling from the aftermath of earthquakes in her home city of Christchurch. Her only reprieve is the sea, surfing in Sumner and paddleboarding to her refuge at Boulder Bay. Out on the water one morning she sees something that forces her to risk her life for a complete stranger.

Here Upon the Tide is a stunning debut novel about two grieving teenagers who find new ways to be happy in the most unlikely of places.
