Head to mysterious Deephaven with The Girl Who Broke the Sea by A. Connors, which comes with an accompanying activity pack, which we created for Parrot Street Book Club subscribers in March 2023.

“We were completely gripped by The Girl Who Broke the Sea. Lily's story is thought-provoking and in places very unsettling, but ultimately fascinating and hopeful. The book says so much about friendship, self and our sense of home.


After she gets kicked out of school for her destructive behaviour, Lily agrees to an unusual fresh start: going with her mum to live at Deephaven, an experimental deep-sea mining rig and research station located at the bottom of the ocean. Lily instantly regrets her decision: claustrophobic and isolated, it’s hardly her idea of home. Turns out, Deephaven has problems of its own. The head scientist, they quickly learn, has disappeared – just as he was on the brink of a shocking discovery. In the darkness of the deep, something is stirring … something dangerous. And it’s calling out to Lily.

Adam Connors is a former physicist who worked on part of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN and now works as an engineering manager in the Google Research team. The Girl Who Broke the Sea is his debut book.

The activity pack includes stickers, book club-style questions to ponder and a welcome note from A. Connors. There’s also a science and engineering word puzzle to solve and an underwater painting activity to try, alongside jokes and further reading recommendations.

Activity packs are a handy A5 size and printed on uncoated paper which is fully recyclable.
