Deborah Abela's 'cranky' novel
Grimsdon was inspired by governments around the world not taking enough care of
the planet…it focuses 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.
