Zoe ran. Harder than she had ever run in her life. Her feet pounded through the deserted streets of derelict buildings. Somewhere, not far behind, she could hear the gang coming after her. It felt as if her heart would burst but she didn’t slow down. She’d been planning to leave the island for a long time but had been putting it off. It was a big decision to set out to sea in a tiny rowing boat. Now she had no choice.
Imagine that a few years from now, England is covered by water and Norwich is an island. Zoe, left behind in the confusion when her parents escaped, survives there as best she can. Alone and desperate among marauding gangs, she manages to dig a derelict boat out of the mud and get away to Eels Island. But Eels Island, whose raggle-taggle inhabitants are dominated by the strange boy Dooby, is full of danger too. As Zoe stages a daring escape, will she ever find a safe place and be reunited with her family? Set in a ravaged future, this is a powerful and emotive novel full of stunning landscapes from award-winning writer Marcus Sedgwick.
