Description

Part graphic novel and part adventure tale, this fantasy that takes place in the near future follows a spunky heroine living in a flooded London where rival police forces compete to keep the peace. Jemima Mallard doesn't have time to worry about the fact that the city has been sinking ever since the climate upgrade--she's having a bad day. Her boyfriend knocks her off a pier, some hooded youths scuttle her houseboat, and she loses two tanks of precious air that were gifts from her father. Even worse, the Youth Police accuse her of being mixed up with a criminal named Father Thames and her father--the Chief Inspector of the Adult Police--can't seem to fix the error. Ideal for manga fans and reluctant readers, this copiously illustrated story explores environmental themes in an accessible and exciting manor.
