About this title:

Synopsis: When her mother dies unexpectedly, fifteen-year-old Sierra Rouge travels to South Africa, a country she's never been to, to live with her celebrity chef father, a man she barely knows.
During a boat tour, she learns from local activists that dead sharks are washing up on the shore without their fins.
Sierra decides to take matters into her own hands to find the people responsible. In her efforts to bring down the shark finning operation, the past sneaks up on her and she discovers that there may be more to her mother's death--and life--than she realized.
A fast-paced adventure novel rooted in a real-life environmental challenge, The Drowning Shark is the story of one girl's quest to discover answers, find a new sense of normal, and do good in the world.
∆   ∆   ∆Here's What Amazon Readers Are Saying About The Drowning Shark

  • "An international young adult adventure with a social conscience."
  • "Well-paced Jane-Bondesque environmental spy thriller featuring a young teen girl."
  • "The Drowning Shark is so full of vivid action packed events, all I can say is buckle up and hold on tight for the ride."
  • "This book is a page turner... like one might expect from a young teenage Jane Bond - exotic locations and international villains included."
  • "Sophisticated young adult fiction with a steady pace."
  • "Well written and difficult to put down, there was intrigue and humor incorporated into a plot that educates the reader of pressing and compelling social and environmental issues today."
Who the book is for:
  • "A great book to give kids ages 9-14, as an engaging read with an important message."
  • "While targeted to young adults (middle school), the reading level and plot of this book will also appeal to upper elementary students."
  • "Highly recommended for tweens who like spy-novels and aren't squeamish."
  • "The vivid descriptions of the various venues in South Africa, the well-defined characters, and the intelligent writing style, make this an enjoyable read for teenagers and adults alike."
  • "If you love Alex Rider, the Young James Bond or the Cherub series then this book is for you. In fact the refreshing international setting, plucky lead character and tackling of environmental issues made it better than those in my opinion."
Sierra Rouge is:
  • "a great, fearless sleuth with a heart for doing what is right, even if it means taking risks."
  • "a very positive, female role model for boys and girls alike."
  • "Nancy Drew for Current Times"
  • "spunky, independent, smart, witty, and strong. She sets a good example to others on how they too can make a difference in their own community."
  • "If you are looking for a strong female protagonist, well-traveled and culturally savvy, Sierra is your girl!"
The Drowning Shark Addresses Social and Environmental Challenges
  • "What I enjoyed most about this book was the underlying problem of shark finning and the many different reactions to it. There were a vast amount of characters in the story that reacted differently to this problem."
  • "If you're a teacher, this would be a great book to read as a class or book club-especially during Shark Week! It's sure to spark some great conversations between adults and young readers on how we all can help make this planet better."
  • "The storyline forces the reader to think about how we act upon social challenges that are presented to us. Do we dive in and force change or do we sit back and wait for the challenge to work itself out?"
  • "Teen reader(s), and in some cases even pre-teens, will readily identify with the desire to stand for something larger than Self -- in this book, a remarkable read about the plight of sharks."
