Rate this:
It was supposed to be a homecoming and reunion, but when Anne Tennyson Miller (Tenn to her friends and family) returns to Driftwood Bay with her new friend Una, they find a ghost town.

Something has gone terribly wrong in the world. The sea is rising fast, and everyone - almost everyone - has fled to the hills. Danger and treachery lurk on a highway littered with abandoned cars and possessions, and the girls, along with two young strangers who conceal a mystery of their own, head across country. They climb through the wilderness in hopes of finding the Miller family and safety, perhaps, from the relentless tide. But their adventures have only begun . . .

The town is much too quiet. There’s no sign of life or of any vehicles. Abandoned possessions litter the roads. At the landing, the water has risen so that it now covers the platform, the stairs and most of the boardwalk. Tenn and Una have no idea what has happened – only that something has gone terribly wrong. What now? Canadian.
