Product Description New York Times #1 best-selling author Rick Riordan pays homage to Jules Verne in his exciting modern take on 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea."If you have ever craved a story that will leave your heart racing, your lungs gasping from the numerous twists and turns, your soul heaving from the effort of now carrying an ensemble cast, you will find all that and more in these pages."--New York Times best-selling author Roshani ChokshiAna Dakkar is a freshman at Harding-Pencroft Academy, a five-year high school that graduates the best marine scientists, naval warriors, navigators, and underwater explorers in the world. Ana's parents died while on a scientific expedition two years ago, and the only family's she's got left is her older brother, Dev, also a student at HP. Ana's freshman year culminates with the class's weekend trial at sea, the details of which have been kept secret. She only hopes she has what it'll take to succeed. All her worries are blown out of the water when, on the bus ride to the ship, Ana and her schoolmates witness a terrible tragedy that will change the trajectory of their lives. But wait, there's more. The professor accompanying them informs Ana that their rival school, Land Institute, and Harding-Pencroft have been fighting a cold war for a hundred and fifty years. Now that cold war has been turned up to a full broil, and the freshman are in danger of becoming fish food. In a race against deadly enemies, Ana will make amazing friends and astounding discoveries about her heritage as she puts her leadership skills to the test for the first time.Rick Riordan's trademark humor, fast-paced action, and wide cast of characters are on full display in this undersea adventure, a New York Times #1 best-seller.Complete your middle grade action-adventure collection with these titles:Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief by Rick RiordanArtemis Fowl by Eoin ColferRick Riordan Presents: Aru Shah and the End of Time by Roshani ChokshiRick Riordan Presents: City of the Plague God by Sarwat Chadda From School Library Journal Gr 6 Up—The last Friday of Ana Dakkar's freshman year at Harding-Pencroft Academy is like any other—until she watches her home crumble into the ocean, leaving her class of 20 students and their least favorite teacher the sole survivors. Soon, the students learn that the alt-tech of Jules Verne's novels is real and that Ana has inherited a legacy that may be too heavy to carry. A fast-paced, action-packed ride from start to finish, this latest Riordan title promises the same thrills and humor readers have come to expect from his work. The occasional pop culture reference may end up dating the story a bit, but current readers will certainly enjoy them. Ana is Bundeli Indian, and the rest of the students are a diverse mix of ethnicities; one student has severe anxiety and has an emotional support animal. VERDICT May be a harder sell for the typical Riordan fan, but perfect for readers who enjoyed Daniel José Older's Flood City or Rhoda Belleza's Empress of a Thousand Skies.
