SAVE THE HUMANS...
WHAT IF... the whales had knowledge of an upcoming disaster, and we didn't?
WHAT IF... the whales decided they had to warn us?
WHAT IF... there was just one human being in the world the whales could turn to who would know what to do?
A tsunami is coming to the East Coast of America... and it's up to two brave teens to find a way to sound the alarm, so that a catastrophic disaster can be averted in time. Along the way, Isabel and Jessaloup must learn to understand, and accept, the differences between their two opposite worlds - the ocean and dry land - in order to discover the deep, essential bonds that connect them.
