Title: THE SEISMIC SEVEN
Publisher: HarperCollins Children's
Release date: June 5th, 2018
13 year-old Brianna Dobson didn’t plan to spend her summer saving the world from total destruction. But what starts as an educational experience shadowing geologist Dr. Samantha Grier in Yellowstone National Park quickly becomes a race to stop a massive volcanic eruption the likes of which the humanity has never seen.
Underneath Yellowstone lies a supervolcano that has the power to wipe most of North America off the map and plunge the planet into an endless winter. Dr. Grier needs the assistance of seven young people to stop the eruption before it starts. Bri is thrilled to be chosen to help, especially as this will give her the opportunity to make one of the most epic documentaries of all time with her brand new camera—a gift from her YouTube-famous aunt. But as Bri and her new friends dive deeper into the Earth, they begin to realize they are in even greater danger than they first thought. All is not as it seems in Yellowstone, and betrayal throws Bri and her friends up against the world’s greatest destructive force far before they are ready to face it. The seven young teens will need to combine all of their creativity and courage in order to save the planet, all while crushed by the terrifying reality that their efforts will likely be in vain and that the odds of survival are next to nothing.
Seven kids. One supervolcano. One chance to save the world.
