Across the Risen Sea is another original and heartfelt middle-fiction adventure, exploring themes of loyalty, resilience, courage and the environment, from the multi-award winning author of How to Bee and The Dog Runner.

'It's one of them days when everything is off. A hot sweaty night in Rusty Bus means we kids is all grouchy-tired. Me and my best friend, Jaguar, is trying to cool down by taking turns at dipping in the sea pool. Him standing on the sea wall made from car frames and rocks on lookout for crocs, me swimming, then we'll swap places. We's always doing things as a team, him and me. We's gonna be the best fisher people and the best salvagers on the whole of the inland sea one day.'

Neoma and Jag and their small community are 'living gentle lives' on high ground surrounded by the risen sea that caused widespread devastation. When strangers from the Valley of the Sun arrive unannounced they 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.
