Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In a drowned world, can refuge be found?

Less than a hundred years from now, the world as we know it has disappeared beneath the sea. Only fifteen-year-old Mara has the vision and the will to lead her people in search of a new beginning in this harsh, unfamiliar world.

Booklist Science Fiction/Fantasy Top 10 for Youth

“This sweeping, futuristic fantasy envisions a ravaged Earth, submerged almost entirely in water after a century of global warming . . . wholly imagined, extraordinarily vivid worlds.” —Booklist, starred review

“Ecologically conscious teens will embrace this girl who is destined to save humanity.” —School Library Journal

“Intellectually rigorous and bursting with humanity, this is a book to be read again and again.” —Sunday Herald (UK)

Synopsis:

An internationally acclaimed bestseller is finally available to American audiences. "Exodus" is an epic story of survival set on a near-future Earth where global warming has become a reality. A miracle of a novel.--"The Guardian."

Synopsis:

An internationally acclaimed bestseller, vividly and terrifyingly topical, is finally available to American audiences. Less than a hundred years from now, the world as we know it no longer exists. Cities have disappeared beneath the sea, technology no longer functions, and human civilization has reverted to a much more primitive state On an isolated northern island, the people of Wing are trying to hold onto their way of life--even as the sea continues to claim precious acres and threatens to claim their very lives Only fifteen-year-old Mara has the vision and the will to lead her people in search of a new beginning in this harsh, unfamiliar world. This compelling and powerful story set in the near future will hit home with teens, especially those who are ever more aware of the increasingly controversial climate crisis we face in our world today.
