AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Fourteen-year-old Joe had never heard of Wayward Island before he came to live with his cousin, Meg, and her family at Cockle Bay. Nor had he ever heard of Scarface! Wayward Island, out to sea, is a spellbinding place of windswept hills and beckoning seashores. Scarface is a huge, white pointer shark, a fearless killer, an ever-present yet elusive shadow. Terrible events carve the names of both Wayward Island and Scarface into the memories of Joe and Meg of seashores and shadows they will never forget.'
