In the exciting sequel to young adult eco-thriller, Code Blue, Atlantic (Tic) Brewer returns to the North East Science Academy where she and her fellow students are racing against the clock to save civilization from the results of the Change.
Tic wants nothing more than to study and hang with her friends and do her best to forget the events of the last few months, especially her time in the North Atlantic on board the Joshua. But things go from bad to worse for Tic. She is more than relieved to get away from school and relax with Uncle Al and his family, even amidst the constant threat of wildfires.
But Tic just can’t seem to stay out of trouble. When her past catches up with her, it will take help from all her friends for Tic to survive and figure out what or who is behind the Change.
Far from your typical boarding-school adventure, Code Blue and Code Red challenges readers with questions relevant to our time.
