“Deborah Abela understands and writes what children relish reading . . . Final Storm is the third in her ‘Grimsdon’ series (Penguin Random House Australia) and is a rollercoaster of adventure, intrigue and futuristic invention, as well as being a rallying cry about climate change.”

“Once again Deborah has given middle school readers a thrilling adventure/fantasy that will have readers on the edge of their seats but also will give them much on which to reflect. As young people such as Greta Thunberg take action in a powerful (and fast growing) global movement, in a world where the power-mongers refuse to act this is exactly the kind of narrative to inspire more and more of our future citizens. Kudos to Deborah for another inspired instalment in what has become one of the most popular series for this age group!”

“Final Storm is a compelling adventure set in the future, a world where climate change threatens to completely wipe out humanity. It is a real wake up call for addressing climate change, and is extremely appealing to young environmental activists in this day and age, where a future like that in this book is not at all inconceivable. This story explores the depths of friendships and the meaning of family.”

“Driven by intrigue, it is a page turner that will preoccupy young readers.”

“The story is fast-paced with many unexpected twists. The friends are action heroes who manage to overcome each potentially deadly challenge in the nick of time . . . Overall this is an exciting read for Grades 4,5 and 6.”
