FloodWorld shortlisted for the Brilliant Book Awards

We’re delighted that FloodWorld, by Tom Huddleston, has been shortlisted for the Brilliant Book Awards!

Managed by Nottinghamshire Education Library Service and The Bookcase, the Brilliant Book Award is an annual award voted for by Key Stage 3 students schools across the county. The award aims to promote reading for pleasure, raise awareness of children’s literature, and recognise excellence as well as popularity.

Here’s what people have said about FloodWorld:

“This fast-paced futuristic adventure story set in a sunken, post-climate change London feels like a blockbuster movie in waiting.” – TimeOut

“An action-packed, edge-of-the-seat thriller.” – BookTrust

“Beautifully written, fantastically timely, and utterly addictive. We cannot recommend this one highly enough.” – Read it Daddy! (blog)

Kara and Joe spend their days navigating the perilous waterways of a sunken city, scratching out a living in the ruins. But when they come into possession of a mysterious map, they find themselves in a world of trouble. Suddenly everyone’s after them: gangsters, cops and ruthless Mariner pirates in their hi-tech submarines. The two children must find a way to fight back before FloodWorld’s walls come tumbling down…
