About Starboard
The extraordinarily inventive and inspiring new middle grade novel from the rapturously acclaimed author of BLOOM.

This is the story of Kirsten, an apparently happy and successful 11-year-old YouTube star who meets a ship that comes alive... and is claimed by it as its new captain as it breaks free from its dry dock.

Inspired by the true history of the SS Great Britain, Starboard is about the friendship, heroism and bravery that you can find in others, whether they're made of flesh or iron. It's about taking control of your own life and going on epic adventures. But most of all, it's about finding out who you really dare to be, when you're completely out of your depth...

Guardian and the Pool before being inspired to write Bloom, which was longlisted for both the Blue Peter Book Award and Branford Boase Book Award and won the North Somerset Book Award. She lives near Bristol with her family. 

This is a multi-award winning Moon Lane Group online children’s literary event in association with HarperCollins Children’s
