Faced with a whole new life far away from home, Sophie finds it hard to make friends – until a shared passion for water helps someone else come to terms with their disability.
In Her Element’s deep-dive into Sophie’s world offers a rare opportunity for young readers to see through the eyes of a main character with cerebral palsy.
In Her Element was edited by Liz Bankes and art directed by Tiffany Leeson at Farshore.
