The fab cover design!

The ice caps have melted.

Only Scavvers live in the flooded towns.

The world has changed, but as 14-year-old Danni Rushton soon learns, it isn’t the first time. Danni’s life is turned upside down when her aunt is assassinated. With her dying breath, she entrusts Danni with a strange, small rock. Danni must not tell a soul that she has it. But what is the rock for, and to what lengths must Danni go to keep it safe?

Fleeing from the barren terrain of Greenland to the flooded ruins of Cambridge, Danni discovers that friends aren’t always what they seem and a rock isn’t always just a rock

I adored this book and it is a literal gripping read. People say that ‘they can’t put this book down because it’s too good’, but I could not put this book down, honestly. I love the storyline and the heroine is a confused girl who has just been entrusted with a peculiar rock she knows nothing about.

I love the cover of this book because it show the flooded areas and two hands cupping the rock with odd runes plastered all over it. The cover doesn’t say much about the book but at the same time it does. It’s mysterious and so pulls you in, but also very simple.

Kate Kelly is an amazing author and brings the book alive with a ‘show not tell’ style. She shows you who the characters are by not saying much.

This book was amazing. Thanks Kate Kelly.
