'Spectacular. A wild, hilarious, surreal adventure of self-discovery' Guardian

'A fabulously entertaining, hugely inventive novel of epic adventure, friendship and bravery' Editor's Choice, Bookseller
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...
