Edge of Extinction (#2) Code Name Flood by Martin
DINOSAURS ARE BACK!
Jurassic World’s record-breaking run made it the current fourth-highest grossing film of all time. And its sequel, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, is being released in June 2018! The Edge of Extinction series is sure to captivate middle grade audiences who loved the first film with its impeccable balance of heart-racing thrills and well-timed humor and fun.
AN EPIC SCI-FI ADVENTURE
This series is a thrill-a-minute ride. With deadly dinosaurs around every corner and Sky’s mysterious mission to complete, it’s a wonderful action-packed blend of both a survival and a quest story.
WELCOME TO … THE EDGE OF EXTINCTION
Going one step further than Michael Crichton’s classic Jurassic Park and the subsequent blockbuster films, Laura Martin has envisioned a fascinating post-apocalyptic world where dinosaurs rule. And she’s created so many richly imagined settings like the stark and utilitarian compounds, a marvelous and covertly underwater lab, and the beautifully lush but deadly world above.
BOY AND GIRL APPEAL
Boys and girls will absolutely love our tween cast. Sky is thoughtful, daring, and clever. Her best friend, Shawn, is a tech whiz and a stickler for the rules who is out of his element and constantly trying to prove himself. Todd, from the Oaks, is wild, sometimes arrogant, but always brave. And the latest addition to the group in this book is Chaz, a young Lincoln Lab research assistant who knows more than a thing or two about dinosaurs.
GREAT HOOK FOR EDUCATORS
This series is filled with numerous species of dinosaurs, described in such detail that you can almost feel them breathing down your neck, so this is a perfect selection for teachers and librarians wanting a compelling way to teach students about dinosaurs.
MORE TO COME
Laura Martin’s next middle grade novel, the stand-alone Float, is also on this Summer 18 list.
