Say the name Piha and for most people a vision of surfing/ dramatic rescues/ summer days full of endless sun appears in their mind. However for 16-year-old Holly Armstrong, fresh from London where we begin to understand something very distressing happened to her, Piha turns into a place of murder and unexplained mystery. She tries hard to be ‘normal’ but that is something that is completely out of her control as more and more frightening events unfold and New Zealand teeters on the brink of war.
The writer, for whom this is a first book in the Young Adult genre, lives in Auckland and has recently completed the sequel to Forecast
