By Butterworth, Jess
Heartland middle-grade adventure set in the swamps of Louisiana, perfect for fans of Katherine Rundell and Lauren St John Our land is sinking. It's disappearing into the water. And no one knows how to save it. Twelve-year-old Eliza lives by the swamps of coastal Louisiana. She kn...ows how to navigate through the swamplands: kayaking through the bayous, avoiding the alligators and dodging the cypress knees. But her home is sinking into the Gulf of Mexico. Eliza knows that her land is special. She's sure that if she can just find something in the swamps that will prove it's worth saving - an animal that's found nowhere else, or maybe hidden minerals - then someone will have to help them save her land before it sinks forever. But it's hurricane season. As Eliza and her sister search the swamp for something that can save their home, the winds start to rage and a storm approaches. Soon it becomes a race against time to get back to safety. And if they make it, they still have to save their home.Read more
