Anna Decker is a 9th grade student at the academy that produces the best explorers and naval fighters in the world. Her main concern is the stressful end-of-year exams, but another end awaits her: a huge explosion takes the prestigious high school off the ground and with it her older brother - her only family member. All Anna has left are her classmates and the teacher who hates her, who tells her about the rival high school and the cold war he has been waging with it for a hundred and fifty years. Now the cold war is turning boiling, and Anna and her friends are about to turn food into fish. Battling murderous enemies and domestic traitors, Anna learns the startling truth about her heritage and faces her first and fateful test of leadership. All the hallmarks of Rick Reardon - the humor, the action and the wild characters - star in an underwater adventure full of twists and turns inspired by Jules Verne's famous book, 20,000 Miles Under Water. Other favorite series of Reardan: Percy Jackson, Heroes of Olympus, Fate of Apollo, Magnus Chase and the Kane family. Rick Reardon, nicknamed "The Storyteller of the Gods", is an award-winning American children's author. As a teenager I read a lot of mythological stories and fantasy and science fiction books. He worked for 14 years as a middle school literature and history teacher, until he retired to devote all his time to writing. When his son asked him for a bedtime story, he composed stories that combine the world of fantasy and his favorite mythology. These stories became the successful series Percy Jackson and the Olympians, which fascinated teenagers from all over the world and brought them closer to the stories of Greek mythology. Rick Reardon's youth books have been translated into 37 languages, sold more than 40 million copies in the United States alone, won many awards and were made into a movie.
