Written by Cristy Burne - Illustrated by Amanda Burnett
Published by Fremantle Press, April 2024. ISBN: 9781760993870 (paperback)

About the book:

‘What starts as a fun snorkelling adventure quickly becomes a test of character and conscience when Blair loses his brother’s beloved camera under the sea.

Terrified to confess, Blair becomes increasingly wracked with guilt until two very different conversations – one with his great-grandmother and one with his cousin – help him find his way.

A rare gem of a story that perfectly encapsulates the emotional minefield of a mistake and its consequences.’
