Deep Water

HENRY WEAVER IS MISSING
Three months ago, thirteen-year-old Henry disappeared from The Shallows during a violent storm, leaving behind his muddied mountain bike at the train station.

MASON WEAVER IS TRAPPED
While Mason doesn't know who he is or what he's capable of, he knows the one thing binding him to this suffocating small town is his younger brother, Henry.

CHLOE BAXTER WANTS ANSWERS
Why would Henry run away without telling her? One of Chloe's friends knows something and she's determined to find out the truth.

As Chloe wades into dangerous waters and Mason's past emerges, a chilling question ripples to the surface: how far would you go to keep a secret?

RATINGS & REVIEW

A gripping story
Sarah Epstein has written a wonderful thriller. This book is a real page turner. The mystery about Henry Weaver's disappearance takes many twists and turns. I would absolutely recommend it for anyone to read but especially for the fifteen to eighteen age group because it shows such a great understanding of the tumultuous times this group has to cope with.

A thrilling read for young adult and adults!
**I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review** ‘…when a person has been missing for more than three months, they are considered to be long term missing. Henry has been gone for two months and thirty days. Tomorrow he will become a long-term missing person’. Deep Water follows the mystery of what happened the night Henry Weaver went missing. It is told from multiple points of view and from before and after Henry went missing. The main viewpoints are from Chloe (Henry’s friend who is conducting her own investigation), Mason (Henry’s brother), and snippets from Henry prior to when he went missing. The novel focuses on Chloe’s, Mason’s and Henry’s friendship group – Raf, Sabeen, Tom, and Rina, as well as notable figures in the town. As Chloe delves into the circumstances surrounding Henry’s disappearance she discovers that everyone is hiding something, but who knows what happened to Henry? Whilst Deep Water is classified as young adult, the prose and plot are sophisticated enough for an adult reader to enjoy. The plot is well thought out and the character development is spot on. As the story progresses, the reader becomes conflicted by the morally grey actions of the characters. I really enjoyed the character development and the main back-stories of Henry, Mason, and Chloe helps to set the scene and push the plot forward when switching to the present. The different points of view helps to build a larger perspective of what was happening leading up to the night Henry went missing. The red herrings that are dropped throughout are plausible and help to build the atmosphere of mystery and suspense as Chloe tries to determine what happened and if Henry is still alive. The ending did not disappoint, but does leave the reader conflicted as to what happened. Throughout the novel, the reader feels that uncomfortable feeling of accepting that sometimes good people can do bad things. A highly recommended read for lovers of young adult, thriller, and crime fiction!

I couldn't put this down
I’ve been really looking forward to reading Deep Water after absolutely loving Sarah’s debut novel, Small Spaces, and it went far beyond my expectations. This was a thriller that kept me up all night, desperate to know why Henry Weaver had gone missing and where he was now. The story is narrated from multiple perspectives, with present day narration from Chloe and flashbacks from Mason in the lead up to Henry’s disappearance. It all twines together in a suspenseful series of twists and turns that will leave you desperate for answers and unable to put this down. If you’re looking for a mystery that will keep you guessing until the last page, then you’ve found it. Sarah does a brilliant job getting inside the minds of her young characters and has a range of character ages from 12 to 18. She explores the different pressures and struggles they face, making her characters feel real and relatable. This is a great read for 14-18 year olds.
