Across the Risen Sea by Bren MacDibble

Neoma and Jaguar are a team. They always do things together and dream of becoming the best fishing crew and salvagers on the whole of the inland sea. Self-subsisting and largely forgotten by a succession of governments, their small community tries to live peaceful, environmentally gentle lives.

When strangers from the Valley of Sun arrive uninvited and make unwelcome changes, their gentle lives and dreams are threatened. Neoma must set off on a daring solo mission – encountering freak storms, floating cities, pirates, sharks and shark-wrestling crocodiles along the way – to protect the people she loves and their way of life.

From the author of How to Bee and The Dog Runner comes an action-packed adventure in a post-climate crisis world. For readers who might be feeling worried about the future, this adventure with courageous, loyal and resilient characters will help explore human impact on our planet. For ages 9+.
