The residents of Wing have been moving further and further inland, but the sea just keeps following them. Soon there will be no place to move to and the island will be gone. Mara knows this and believes it. Mara also has a secret, she's been playing with her cyberwizz and she thinks there are places of safety but they need to go now or they will all die when the seas rise again. Will the islanders agree to go? Will they find safety?

From official release/information:

Book Description: An internationally acclaimed bestseller, vividly and terrifyingly topical, is finally available to American audiences. Less than a hundred years from now, the world as we know it no longer exists. Cities have disappeared beneath the sea, technology no longer functions, and human civilization has reverted to a much more primitive state

On an isolated northern island, the people of Wing are trying to hold onto their way of life—even as the sea continues to claim precious acres and threatens to claim their very lives

Only fifteen-year-old Mara has the vision and the will to lead her people in search of a new beginning in this harsh, unfamiliar world.
