On a quiet summer day, 13-year-old Kady Gonzalez sees an armored silver fish leap high in Peachwood Lake. She thinks it's an awesome sight-until, a few minutes later, Kady watches in horror as the same jumping fish savagely attacks a neighbor in his rowboat. That's the start of the malevolent fish's war on the pristine Connecticut lake. As the casualties mount, Kady, an aspiring writer, is befriended by Monique, a sassy young newspaper reporter. In addition to covering the fish story, Monique counsels the motherless girl on the frightening problems of growing up, especially how to deal with the hurtful taunts of Hannah, a popular classmate. While the mysterious fish continues to attack anyone venturing into the water, town officials desperately attempt to destroy the demonic creature. Will they succeed without having to sacrifice Peachwood Lake-and will "Fraidy Kady" succeed in conquering her own personal demons?

I have to admit I had my reservations about reading a book about an armoured fish that attacks people - I thought it was going to be like a bad 1980s horror film. Thanks to the nice characterisation, I soon got beyond my concerns. The central character, Kady, is a realistically drawn 13 year old struggling to find a place in the popularity hierarchy, and a place in the world without her mum. Having witnessed one of the violent fish attacks she is befriended by a local journalist, Monique. Monique encourages her talent for writing and through it Kady finds her sense of self, and self-worth. Susan Berliner also beautifully depicts the father-daughter relationship with her dad in its full proud and protective splendour. With ringside seats to the attacks, Monique and Kady follow the town's struggle to defeat the demonic fish and restore peace to Peachwood Lake.
