Reviews for Surface Tension

Meg McKinlay expertly guides her readers through a well-plotted coming of age story that's beautifully atmospheric ... A real page turner. * Sunday Age * A wonderfully layered story - reading it is like being gradually immersed in a pool of water as each layer of the narrative slowly washes over you ... There isn't a dull moment in this book. The story is full of human connections that will delight readers and there is a whimsy to the text that makes it a great read for all ages * Bookseller+Publisher *
