Jessica's seventh grade teacher pairs her with the class outcast, Daphne, to work on a school project of writing, and illustrating, a book to be submitted in a city-wide contest. Jessica is horrified at the prospect of having to spend so much time with Daphne, not that she doesn't like her, but because she fears the 'popular' girls will tease her. When Jessica appeals to her teacher to let her change partners, he tells her he wants her to work with Daphne because she is the best writer in the class, and Daphne, the best artist. Together, they have a real chance at winning. Jessica is very surprised when, after working many afternoons together, they develop a great friendship. Daphne is hiding a tragic secret, and when Jessica finds out, she swears her to secrecy. When the secret becomes a real threat, Jessica is torn between protecting their friendship, or doing what she knows she must.

In the future, the sea level has risen so that the whole east coast has become submerged. Dry land has become a premium. Living space is scarce and food is scarcer. A small group of brave pioneers have settled the sea floor, harvesting seaweed and fish to feed the multitudes that live topside. Ty was the first child actually born subsea. He is much more comfortable underwater than he is in the open air. Then he meets Gemma, an orphan from Above. Gemma is searching for her long lost brother. Throw in desperate outlaws who wont' hesitate to plunder, vandalize or even kill; a government bent on keeping the farmers oppressed and kids with some very unusual abilities and you have one gripping adventure. Followed by Rip Tide also by Kat Falls.
