In the first of the Dissenters series, Cara and her two brothers try to find their mother and discover that the world is much richer and stranger than they'd ever imagined.
This ecological middle grade fantasy thriller explores the issue of the failing oceans alongside an epic battle of good versus evil. When their mother disappears at the beginning of summer, the Sykes siblings each cope in different ways. Cara turns to her best friend, Hayley, while her older brother, Max, becomes obsessive about his music, and their little brother, a burgeoning genius named Jax, focuses on science camp. But when menacing man who appears to be enshrouded in water keeps appearing around their Cape Cod home, and animals start communicating with them, they are sucked into the adventure of a lifetime.
