Synopsis: For fifteen-year-old Hal Ditton and his family, summer has always meant six glorious weeks by the sea. But this year is different - Charley, Hal's sister, is lying in a coma. When the troubled family makes the difficult decision to return to their holiday home without her, Hal finds it harder than anyone to shake off his elder sister's presence. In fact, Hal's mind is crowded with thoughts of Charley, and the events that led to her accident on the beach last summer - thoughts which, he comes to realise, are not entirely his own.

About the Author: Liverpool native Sharon Dogar is a graduate of the City Literary Institute of London, and her diverse métiers include being a waitress, bar girl, fruit picker, hearing therapist, school counselor, and now an official writer. Sharon enjoys staring at the sea, lying in meadows, reading stories, looking at pictures in galleries, watching theatre, spending time with family and children, and traveling to here and there.

Sharon’s first book with Scholastic’s Chicken House, Waves, will be released in 2007. About how the story was birthed, Sharon comments, I had the moment.’ That moment when a character just arrives in your mind and begs to be written--whether you want to do it or not. I remember it was lunchtime, and I was fed up and angry because everything I tried to write felt dull and dead. I walked into the sitting room and had a thought: I was by the sea. And in that moment I saw a boy with his back to me, he was in the kitchen of a beach house, looking at something on the wall. Looking at it with utter intensity and absorption. I knew straight away his name was Hal. I walked back into my own kitchen and wrote the prologue, immediately and completely, exactly as it remains now in the final manuscript. And then I had to write the story to go with it!”

For the future Sharon plans to be an involved and active mother and eventually grandmother, see spring turn into summer every year, and of course, continue writing. She presently resides in England with her husband and three children.
