Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0802797458, Hardcover)
An internationally acclaimed bestseller, vividly and terrifyingly topical, is finally available to American audiences.
Less than a hundred years from now, the world as we know it no longer exists. Cities have disappeared beneath the sea, technology no longer functions, and human civilization has reverted to a much more primitive state
On an isolated northern island, the people of Wing are trying to hold onto their way of life—even as the sea continues to claim precious acres and threatens to claim their very lives
Only fifteen-year-old Mara has the vision and the will to lead her people in search of a new beginning in this harsh, unfamiliar world.
This compelling and powerful story set in the near future will hit home with teens, especially those who are ever more aware of the increasingly controversial climate crisis we face in our world today.

It is 2099 and the world is gradually drowning as the ice floes melt and the sea rises. For 15-year-old Mara, her family and community, huddled on a fast-disappearing island, the new century brings flight. Packed into tiny boats, a terrifying journey begins to a city that rises into the sky. But even here there is no safety. Shut out of the city, they are asylum-seekers in a world of high-tech wizardry and great injustice. To save her people, Mara must not only find a way into the city but also search for a new land and a new home... Suggested level: secondary.
