Booked Out congratulate Deb Abela on her new book New City.
Inspired by governments around the world not taking enough care of the planet, Deborah Abela’s first novel in the series Grimsdon focused on a group of kids left behind in a flooded city with sea monsters, flying machines and sneaker waves…
The sequel, New City, takes the issue of a climate-changed world further by asking what happens to the refugees created when wild weather drives them out of their homes? This time, there are ornithopters, ice tornados, rescue eagles and a brand new bad guy.
Isabella and her friends are nervous about what they’ll find in the New City. It’s inland and it’s dry – far from the flooded city they’ve just left. Will their lives here be as luxurious and carefree as Xavier says? In fact, bleak, uncertain times have brought darkness and danger to New City.
