When 16-year-old Ginny discovers that her father has a secret son she realises that everything that previously made her feel so safe and secure is a lie. As she tries to restore her faith in her father and herself, she comes face to face with unforgettable truths and long-forgotten tragedies that will change her life dramatically and forever.
The Broken Bridge is a stunning novel by Philip Pullman, the award-winning author of Northern Lights and The Subtle Knife. The teenager-in- turmoil, so familiar and often so very strange, is treated with a respect and sensitivity that moves the story up a notch, allowing the sizzling and compelling drama that unfolds between the pages to paint a potent picture of a girl on her own voyage of discovery. Pullman has triumphed again, proving that clever and sympathetic writing can easily be coupled with dramatic storytelling at its very best. --Susan HarrisonReview:
"The emotional truths that Pullman reveals are so heartfelt and raw that they hardly read like fiction."--(starred) Publishers Weekly."An intriguing mystery that keeps the reader guessing and turning the pages until the very end."--Horn Book.
