The Light at the Bottom of the World

ebook
Hope had abandoned them to the wrath of all the waters. At the end of the twenty-first century, the world has changed dramatically, but life continues one thousand feet below the ocean's surface. In Great Britain, sea creatures swim among the ruins of Big Ben and the Tower of London, and citizens waver between fear and hope; fear of what lurks in the abyss, and hope that humanity will soon discover a way to reclaim the Earth. Meanwhile, sixteen-year-old Leyla McQueen has her own problems to deal with. Her father's been arrested, accused of taking advantage of victims of the Seasickness—a debilitating malaise that consumes people,often claiming their lives. But Leyla knows he's innocent, and all she'sinterested in is getting him back so that their lives can return to normal. When she's picked to race in the action-packed London Submersible Marathon, Leyla gets the chance to secure his freedom; the Prime Minister promises the champion whatever their heart desires. The race takes anunexpected turn, though, and presents her with an opportunity she never wanted: Leyla must venture outside of London for the first time in her life, to findand rescue her father herself. Now, she'll have to brave the unfathomable waters and defy acorrupt government determined to keep its secrets, all the while dealing with a secretive, hotheaded companion she never asked for in the first place. If she fails, or falls prey to her own fears, she risks capture—and her father might be lost forever.
