Excerpt and Giveaway The Storm Bottle by Nick Green

Swimming with dolphins is said to be the number one thing to do before you die. For 12-year-old Michael, it very nearly is. A secret boat trip has gone tragically wrong, and now he lies unconscious in hospital. But when Michael finally wakes up, he seems different. His step sister Bibi is soon convinced that he is not who he appears to be. Meanwhile, in the ocean beyond Bermuda’s reefs, a group of bottlenose dolphins are astonished to discover a stranger in their midst – a boy lost and desperate to return home. Bermuda is a place of mysteries. Some believe its seas are enchanted, and the sun-drenched islands conceal a darker past, haunted with tales of lost ships. Now Bibi and Michael are finding themselves in the most extraordinary tale of all.  


Leading him by the hand towards the ferry landing, I stared past the marina into the ocean.
‘Michael’s out there, somewhere, in your body. So the first thing to do is find him.’
‘And what then?’
‘One thing at a time! You swapped bodies once already. You can do it again.’
‘I suppose.’ Rodrigo squinted in the sun. I lent him my shades – he’d lost Michael’s in the pond.
‘Let’s concentrate on finding him.’
‘Right. How do we do that, Bibi?’
‘What would be useful,’ I said, ‘is a boat.’

This book sounds really wonderful! I love the idea and a swim with some dolphins alongside sounds really awesome. I am really curious about it, especially when it also includes some mysteries from the Bermuda.

Lovely cover! :D
