Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Grand adventure stories often begin where you least expect, Iris knows this because she's read them all. However, as a thirteen-year-old stuck in the tiny country town of Bugden, real adventure seems a distant dream. That doesn't bother Sam, Iris' best friend. For him, catching bugs and swimming in the lake is exciting enough. But when Iris and Sam stumble upon an unusually dry river on the outskirts of town, they're led to a discovery beyond anything Iris has read about: a hidden city, lost in time and shrouded in mystery. As they explore this once flooded relic, the two unearth a forgotten tale of friendship and disaster that seems curiously familiar. Storm clouds gather as secrets begin to surface. Can Iris and Sam uncover the truth in time to keep their friendship afloat, or will history repeat and pull them apart forever?"--Provided by publisher.

    A square of naturalistic light through the window of a beautifully ruined clock tower is emblematic of the theme and aesthetic of this heartfelt adventure. The lush forests and rushing waters complement the design of the vast, abandoned city as its soaring towers and secret passageways are discovered and investigated by the intrepid Iris and her best friend, the more cautious Sam. Iris yearns to escape their small town of Bugden, while Sam loves his home and wants his best friend to stay, and their exploration brings them to the heart of their differences. Splitting apart, Sam meets the friendly, knowledgeable hermit Benjamin, as Iris comes across the evasive, inexplicable Lily, and they're both drawn deeper into the city's history and the danger it still presents. Pamment's art is intricate and generous, and he proves as sensitive to young readers' urge for adventure and mystery as he does to the stakes of their friendships and emotional lives. Includes a beautiful mini-guide to real submerged towns that will fire the imaginations of young explorers. Grades 3-6. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
