Author(s): Deborah Abela
Grimsdon is in ruins. Three years ago a massive wave broke its barriers and the sea flooded this grand city. Most were saved, others were lost and some were left behind. Isabella Charm and her best friend Griffin live with three other children in the top of an opulent mansion. They've survived with the help of Griffin's brilliant inventions, Isabella's survival skills and their vow to look after each other. But what will happen when a thrill-seeking newcomer arrives in his flying machine? When bounty hunters attempt to capture them? When Byron P. Sneddon, the self-appointed protector of the flooded harbour, demands obedience? What if the danger is even greater? Something they can't see coming - something below the floodwaters?
When Deborah Abela was young, she spent her time imagining she was on great adventures all over the world. When she grew older, she went on them for real. She slept beside alligators in Zaire, sailed down Venetian canals and was thrown in jail by heavily armed men in Nigeria before bribing her way out. After three years she came home and worked in kids' TV at Network TEN for seven years before leaving to write novels about a girl who goes on adventures all over the world. Deb is the author of the MAX REMY SUPERSPY and JASPER ZAMMIT (SOCCER LEGEND) series. Her latest books are THE REMARKABLE SECRET OF AURELIE BONHOFFEN and GRIMSDON.
