Description of this Book

The whole floor of the Hub is swarming with snakes. From the safety of the jeep, I swing the torch beam over the walls. Spiders! Big, black, hairy brutes, crawling over each other in a frenzy. By the end of the second millennium, a mere three years away, there will be no dry land above sea level. Cataclysmic global warming has caused the ocean's rapid rise and forced those desperate to survive only one choice: life at the bottom of the sea! Rom lives two thousand metres under the sea and has never seen the sun. His dad runs Deep Ark 6, an underwater zoo that is home to the most venomous snakes and spiders that ever crawled the Surface. The place gives Rom the living creeps. Rom likes to dream about the days on the Surface before the Great Meltdown. To him, trees, blue sky and green grass sound like an alien planet. Little does Rom know that Octo Serp, his father's slithery assistant, also likes to dream about the Surface. Rom is about to find out that dreams can turn into nightmares!
