At 16, Ginny finds that her love of painting connects her to the artistic Haitian mother she never knew and eases the isolation she feels as the only mixed-race teen in her Welsh village. When she learns she has a half-brother by her father's first marriage, her world is shattered. Ginny embarks on a quest for the truth that will allow her to claim her artistic heritage--and face her father.

Product Description:

A revised edition of a teenage mystery. Sixteen-year-old Ginny never knew her mother, but she loves life with her father in a seaside village in Wales. Then a social worker's files are reopened, and Ginny finds that everything her father has told her about her family is a lie.


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 Harrison
