9780091795566: The Floating Island

It's almost a year since fifteen-year-old Matt and his younger brother, Tom, rowed out to the island. Matt, confined to a wheelchair and haunted by nightmares, can't remember what happened. Nor does he want to.
Only when Sarah Bell, a tough, Geordie girl with a no-nonsense approach, takes up the newly vacant position of Matt's carer, do things begin to change for him.
As the floating island returns to the surface of the lake, Matt is forced to confront the truth about his brother's death, but also, unknowingly, exposes him to an adult world of passion, guilt, and betrayal.
