Product Description

Imagine that a few years from now, England is covered by water and Norwich is an island. Zoe was left behind in the confusion when her parents fled. Now she survives as best she can. Alone 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 folk are ruled over by the strange boy Dooby – is full of danger too. Will Zoe ever find solid ground, and be reunited with her family?

  • Winner of the Branford Boase Award 2001
  • The debut novel of top author Marcus Sedgwick
  • A powerful tale of survival in a sinking world
  • By the author of Revolver and The Dark Horse
