Sea GlassRebecca Fraser
A contemporary Australian middle grade novel told with heart and humour against a coastal backdrop. This coming-of-age family drama celebrates the importance of family and environment...and proves you're never too old to go treasure hunting.
When Cailin has to spend Christmas at her eccentric grandfather's shack at Whitefoam Cove, her holiday plans are ruined. She barely remembers him, let alone knows him. Memories of her father are everywhere and, to make matters worse, she's left her cricket bat at home. It's going to be the worst summer ever.
But there's treasure to be found at Whitefoam Cove! However just when it seems she and Grandpa are finally making a connection, disaster strikes ... and Cailin knows it's all her fault.
Sea Glass is a family drama for readers aged 7-12 that explores how, despite difference and disaster, a generational gap can be bridged, with a little treasure hunting.
