"A clever and sympathetic teenage identity-crisis novel, full of solid characters" from the beloved author of His Dark Materials (The Guardian).
Hailed by the New York Times as "a credit to the storytelling skill of Philip Pullman," The Broken Bridge is the tale of Ginny, a sixteen-year-old half-Haitian girl living with her father in a small seaside village in Wales. She's becoming a brilliant artist, just like her mother, who died when Ginny was a baby. Despite the isolation she sometimes feels, her life is turning out OK. Then her social worker cracks open her files and her world falls apart.

Ginny's father has kept a devastating secret from her all her life. In fact, everything she thought she knew about her family and her identity is a lie. And now, to find out who she really is, Ginny must relive the dark tragedies in her past.

The Broken Bridge is an emotionally deft, deeply involving story from the New York Times–bestselling author of Carnegie Medal winner Northern Lights, The Subtle Knife, and The Amber Spyglass.
