Product description


AURABEL is as magical and lyrical and brilliant and special and original as its author, the lovely Laura Dockrill. I adored it. -- Katherine Webber * Twitter * Laura Dockrill's criminally underrated YA books are about mermaids; but mermaids as you've never seen them before. Aurabel is the follow-up to 2015's Lorali and they're both lovely, lyrical, beautifully weird books about a matriarchal community where mermaids are the salvaged bodies of women wronged by society. There's so much magic and fun and brilliant world building layered with sharp commentary about women's bodies and growing up - all written in Dockrill's gorgeous style which is fiercely contemporary and poetic all at the same time. * The Pool * Aurabel is quite unlike anything else being published this year * Culture Fly * Vibrant, savage and funny, AURABEL is a mermaid tale for modern times. * Kiran Millwood Hargrave, winner of 2017 Waterstones Children's Prize * I found Dockrill's writing very unique and interesting * The Books Are Everywhere * the story raises some very interesting issues about body image, internet fandom and what it means to be human * INIS Reading Guide *

Product Description

Forget what you know about mermaids with Laura Dockrill's hilarious, riotous adventure not to be missed.

It has been two years since Rory drowned, and Lorali is in Hastings, living the quiet life of a normal teenage girl. But her safe life on land won't last for long. Life in The Whirl has become a hotbed of underwater politics and as the council jostles to oust the king, one Mer in particular has her eye on Lorali as the key to her own rise to power.

Meanwhile, Aurabel, a lowly Mer from the wrong side of the trench, is attacked by sea beasts and left for dead - and without a tail. Raging with righteous anger, she rebuilds herself a mechanical tail and reinvents herself as a fearless steampunk Mer seeking revenge. But she never expected the most important job that was about to drop into her lap.

Laura Dockrill makes a dramatic return to the sea set in the same world as the sparkling and magnetic mermaid story, Lorali.
