Another WILD adventure from Rodman Philbrick, author of Wildfireand Wild River. Wild Wave is the adventure of two kids trapped in the aftermath of a tsunami. It's kids vs. nature in another edge-of-your seat read!

When a tsunami heads for the coast, Nick Chase and Jess Hardy have to run. They make it into the woods above the bay--only to see the sea flooding their whole neighborhood along the shore. Destroying everything.

In the broken landscape that’s left behind, the two must try to find their way to safety. But when they come across a stranded elderly couple, it’s up to Nick and Jess to work together and get help so that they can all make it out alive.

This is another gripping environmental survival story from the Newbery Honor author of Wildfire and Wild River.

An Amazon Best Book of the Month

A Junior Library Guild Selection

"Newbery Honoree Philbrick twines a heartfelt message about teamwork and forgiveness with realistic dangers in this page-turning survival story. A battle for power keeps the tension high, as do plenty of twists and cliffhangers, which create enough uncertainty to keep the pages turning." -- Publishers Weekly

"As he did with Wildfire, Newbery Honoree Philbrick has crafted another action tale for young readers that's impossible to put down. Readers will need to strap on their helmets and prepare for a wild ride." -- Kirkus Reviews
