Above World (#1)
A suspenseful sci-fi escapade plucks two children out of the ocean for a thrilling adventure in the "Above World". Thirteen-year-old Aluna has lived her entire life under the ocean with the Coral Kampii in the City of Shifting Tides. But after centuries spent hidden from the "Above World", her colony's survival is in doubt. The Kampii's breathing necklaces are failing, but the elders are unwilling to venture above water to seek answers. Only headstrong Aluna and her friend Hoku are stubborn and bold enough to face the terrors of land to search for a way to save their people. But can Aluna's fierce determination and fighting skills, and Hoku's tech-savvy, keep them safe? Set in a world where overcrowding has led humans to adapt - growing tails to live under the ocean or wings to live on mountains - here is a ride through a future where greed and cruelty have gone unchecked, but the loyalty of friends remains true. A fast-paced adventure novel that features two strong protagonists (a girl and a boy), exciting battle scenes and even a little romance. A strong children's book debut from new author Jenn Reese. The first of a planned series.
