Dark free pdf The second gripping young adult thriller in Penelope Todd's Watermark trilogy. IIt's been a year since Zillah visited Roimata, a special place on the wild West Coast that changed her life last summer. Now she's heading back, expecting to meet up with Joss and Hep, the brother and sister who both challenged and betwitched her those strange, magical and sometimes terrifying few days. Yet this time, not only have Joss and Hep asked along another guest: the spiky, self-centred Flea who's like the bad fairy at the banquet - the changes Zillah sees in Joss are disturbing. After a year of low mood at varsity, it seems he's heading into a downwards spiral: a breakdown he wants to handle in his own way. His sister can't handle the final crisis and she leaves Zillah to help him through. Dark is a courageous novel which takes on increasingly difficult psychological terrains. A beautifully written and challenging story that explores the darkness of the unknown. The second, stand-alone, volume in the 'Watermark' trilogy.
