A moving story of friendship and the power of imagination, from the award-winning author of The Peculiar Life of a Lonely Postman

Set on the rugged north shore of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, Canada, The Boy Who Belonged to the Sea tells the touching story of an extraordinary friendship between two young boys who have both suffered the loss of a parent. Although they have little else in common, the boys come together in their grief and take refuge in a world of their own creation, a magical undersea realm inhabited by fantastical beings. Their imaginations take them on a wild adventure, but as the lines between reality and fantasy begin to blur, their search for belonging takes them on a perilous journey that threatens to end in tragedy.

Infused with his characteristic charm, Denis Thériault’s debut novel is a powerful story of grief and friendship that has touched readers’ hearts all over the world.

onder what that shark died of. It had no injuries, wasn’t tangled up in any net. Some shark disease? A maritime problem? A tsunami? An overpowering wave of melancholy? What is the lifespan of a shark, anyway?
