Description of this Book

Isabella and her friends have settled into life in New City, attending school and making new friends - including the charming, talented and eminently humble Aleksander Larson. Isabella quickly finds herself leaning more and more on Aleksander's friendship, a move that distances her friends, particularly Xavier, whose resentment of Aleksander seems unfounded. Meanwhile, the world's weather patterns are becoming increasingly erratic, and the Bureau of Weather and Climate has been failing to predict severe weather events - a failure that endangers the lives of those in New City and plunges the city into rumour and doubt. As a massive storm of ice and snow sets in, it seems the New City can no longer be the safe home its inhabitants need. As friendships, politics and the weather become increasingly unstable, Isabella, Griffin, Xavier and their friends must decide where their loyalties lie, face that which seems too good to be true, and once again save this new city they've decided to call their home.

Author's Bio

After completing a teaching degree, Deb went to Africa where she was caught in a desert sandstorm, harassed by monkeys and thrown in jail ... twice! She produced and wrote a national kids' TV show before leaving to write twenty-six books including the Max Remy Superspy and Jasper Zammit (Soccer Legend) series and Grimsdon, New City and Final Storm, about kids living in a climate-changed world. Teresa A New Australian was inspired by her dad who was born in a cave during one of the heaviest bombing raids of World War II. The Stupendously Spectacular Spelling Bee and the sequel, The Most Marvelous International Bee, were inspired by her grade four teacher, Miss Gray. Her first picture book is Wolfie, An Unlikely Hero. She is a proud ambassador for the Premier's Reading Challenge, Room to Read and Books in Homes. Deb's won awards for her books but mostly hopes to be as brave as her characters.
