Twelve-year-old best friends Carly and Arlene write about the final, cataclysmic days of Atlantis in a story that parallels the growing tensions between the girls. The heroines of their fantasy novel are twin princesses destined for sacrifice to the Rain God. In real life, Carly develops a crush on a boy and Arlene feels betrayed; in Atlantis, Princess Eva is imprisoned in a tower while Princess Lydia falls in love. As the floods threaten to destroy Atlantis, the princesses are separated and each must find a way to escape. Carly and Arlene realize that their lives are taking different and unexpected directions, too. A satisfying read for Atlantis fans, this novel by award-winning author Lisa Williams Kline offers romance, magic, and a race against time.
