At first Dooby wanted to escape the island with Zoe, abandoning all his people, but Zoe refused after seeing Dooby's violence. Rest assured though it’s not a rant about that but the author brilliantly interweaves our possible future into an utterly compelling story.

The language in the book is simple to read but very descriptive, using lots of metaphors and personification.Marcus also wrote with his brother Julian, and contributed to a short story collection with fellow YA authors. We read this because of our Climate Change topic and it has inspired us as a class to try to halt climate change! But it does feel unfinished and I feel like the editor should have pushed for a bit more detail or explanation. Even though it takes so many years for an island to completely sink, I noticed that if we don't have any interest on global warming, things will go much faster than we expected. Along the way she ends up at another Island where she gets herself into a tricky situation and well I won't spoil any more.

Global warming has caused the sea to rise until cities are turning into islands and civilization is crumbling. So bleibt es eher auf dem Niveau von Büchern, die man 14-Jährige zwingt zu lesen, die somit an den Ernst der Welt denken sollen . The doom that prevails is beautifully crafted as is the glimmer of hope that pulls us through the book with its magnetism. Ten-year-old Zoe discovers a small rowboat and keeps it a secret until she sets out alone on the great sea to find her parents.I'd had it for ages but didn't know where I was going to use it until the character of Edgar came along: "I suspect I may have fleas again".
