Pen Clementsabout this book: The idea for this novel was sown many years ago when I crewed across the South Pacific on a yacht. I didn't actually find an island of saltwater people with living tattoos or a shark that stalks in dreams. But there might have been a place like it, just over the horizon...
'Oceanheart' is a YA fantasy set in an oceanic world where the stars are going out. Wynn is a girl with a nightmare who must face her greatest fear if she is to save her sister, Stella.
As Wynn creates a journal of might-have-been memories for her sister, she finds herself pulled into a tropical island world where she must journey through landscapes of myth and magic, danger and despair.There she meets Soran, a boy who reads nature like a book and can survive anything on land and in the sea. What Wynn doesn't know is that Soran's secret could destroy her.
The island could destroy her too. It's no paradise. Paradise doesn't have poison masters called the Teeth. It doesn't have Sorrowmaker patrolling the reefs. And in paradise, you don't have to face your greatest fear to fix your biggest mistake.
Winner of an Australian Society of Authors Mentorship award and an Olvar Wood Fellowship Award.
