The Final Thrilling Book In The GRIMSDON TRILOGY
Deb wrote Grimsdon because she was angry that governments around the world weren't dealing with climate change.
Kids loved it and harassed her to write New City and after even more kid harassment, she wrote the third and last book, Final Storm.
It has wild weather, hoverboards, robots, rescue eagles and a teenager, called Aleksander Larsen, who is smart, kind, good-looking and likes Isabella Charm. Xavier can't stand him.
'The characters, the adventures, the emotion, the plot twists and turns - WHAT'S NOT TO LOVE!'
Jo Noble, Librarian, St Agatha's Catholic School, Clayfield
'AWESOME. EXCITING. UNPUTDOWNABLE!'
Mrs Kerry Gittins, Head Librarian, Renaissance International School
'Your book had me on the edge of my seat in every chapter.'
