Read an Excerpt from Alisha Piercy's Bunny and Shark!

Alisha Piercy's Bunny and Shark (BookThug) combines a perennial favourite genre, the coming of age story, with something much less familiar: a shark tale. When a man pushes his ex-Playboy Bunny wife over a cliff into the Caribbean Ocean, a fable-like survival story emerges.

We're thrilled to present an exclusive excerpt from the novel, courtesy of BookThug. Don't miss the chance to get a sneak peek at this creative, witty, vibrant new novel.
