Read an extract from The Sea Sisters by Lucy Clarke

The Sea Sisters is the story of sisterhood and a life-changing journey from debut author Lucy Clarke.

It's based around the character of Katie, whose carefully structured world is shattered by the news that her headstrong younger sister, Mia, has been found dead in Bali – and the police claim it was suicide.

With only the entries of Mia’s travel journal as her guide, Katie retraces the last few months of her sister’s life, and, page by page, country by country, begins to uncover the mystery surrounding her death. What she discovers changes everything and threatens to push her bond with Mia to breaking point.
