Beach Potato

Rated 4.00/5 based on 1 reviews
Jess knew that leaving the city was the right thing to do and it would give her a chance to escape the bullying without having to fight it, but she had no idea just how different life in Titterstone would be. Her new home would not only give her new hope, but it would also give her close encounters with pirates, ghosts, surfing big waves and beach adventures. A feel good read for the whole family. More

About Sarah Riley

After studying at University Sarah became a nanny on the island of Corfu in Greece. The three children she looked after for two years changed her life and inspired her to write her first children’s novel. However, when she returned to her home in the UK her writing took a back seat as she concentrated on her business career.

A trip to southern India to support the coastal areas damaged by the 2004 Tsunami resulted in her making many life changing decisions, which allowed her desire to write to re-surface. She now lives with her husband Roy in North Devon overlooking the sea and loves nothing more than spending the day at the beach in their old Mercedes campervan, surfing and playing with her two daughters Daisy and Poppy.

Besides writing, Sarah’s favourite things include her Custard Point surfboard, chocolate, skimming pebbles, sunshine and sandy feet.

Review by: kutia on Feb. 06, 2011 :
I really, really liked it. Jess is a nice character. I wish I could live in a place like Titterstone. There is a magical quality to the way their life is described and the activities they enjoy. I do have one or two problems with the writing. None of the children that Jess makes friends with seem to have any parents. They spend the night, go surfing at 5 in the morning and never have to call home. Like I said, this is a very minor problem. It did tend to pull me out of the story. I forgive this fault because it was a really nice story.
