From the multi award-winning Australian author of 'How to Bee' and 'The Dog Runner', another original and heartfelt middle-grade fiction adventure, exploring themes of loyalty, resilience, courage and the environment. Neoma and Jag and their small community are 'living gentle lives' on high ground surrounded by the risen sea that has caused widespread devastation. When strangers from the Valley of the Sun arrive unannounced, the friends find themselves drawn into a web of secrecy and lies that endangers their whole way of life. Soon, daring, loyal Neoma must set off on a solo mission across the risen sea, determined to rescue her best friend and find the truth that will save her village.
