Dive into this powerful time-travelling tale about a curious girl, a scorching heatwave and a lost village deep underwater…

It’s the near-future and Britain is baking in the middle of yet another heatwave. Once again, the government has put curfews in place and the shops have been forced to shut.

For Polly, it’s the kind of heat that makes her do wild, out-of-character things just to cool down! So, when she and her brother are sent to their aunt’s eco house for the summer, Polly decides to face her fear of deep water and take a dip in the nearby Truthwater Lake.

The only problem is, it’s beginning to dry up… But as the water level drops, a lost village emerges! Swimming over the rooftops at midnight, Polly dives down and suddenly discovers that she can breathe, hear church bells and even make out bird song. She’s found a magical underwater gateway to the past!
