The Drowning Shark: A Sierra Rouge Adventure
When her mother dies unexpectedly, fifteen-year-old Sierra Rouge travels to South Africa, a country she's never been to, to live with her celebrity chef father, a man she barely knows.
During a boat tour, she learns from local activists that dead sharks are washing up on the shore without their fins.
Sierra decides to take matters into her own hands to find the people responsible. In her efforts More
There’s nothing typical about fifteen-year-old Sierra Rouge. Nothing at all.
From the time she could walk, Sierra has traveled the world with her mother, a former CIA operative and chief instigator at (the fictional) Metik Ventures, an organization that invests in social innovation projects and individual change makers around the globe. As her mother’s sidekick, Sierra often helped to shut down the groups whose corruption and greed got in the way of Metik’s investments’ success.
Schooled in the cultures she’s lived in, savvy to the ways of slippery adults, and trained by her mother in skills such as jiu jitsu, surveillance, breaking and entering, and high-speed driving, Sierra is able to take on just about anything the world throws at her.
But, when her mother dies unexpectedly in a car accident, Sierra’s life is turned upside down. Mourning the loss of her mother, she travels to South Africa to live with the celebrity chef father she barely knows, accompanied by a cousin who’s never left the United States before, and facing a life that is totally different from the one she grew up in.
While trying to find a new sense of normal, Sierra suddenly finds herself the target of a tracksuit-wearing bad guy, falling smack-dab in the middle of efforts to stop a shark poaching operation, and trying to navigate the very-foreign-to-her social life of an average teen.
As challenging as her circumstances are, Sierra’s instincts and years of training kick in and she embarks on an adventure to find out who is after her, how to work with new friends to bring down the shark poachers, and what it means to be a normal teen when she is anything but. Sierra’s skills, beliefs, and relationships are put to the test in the process. And, she learns that there may be more to her mother’s death–and life–than she realized.
A fast-paced adventure, The Drowning Shark is the story of one girl’s quest to discover answers and the role she will play in saving the sharks, the people she cares for, and even herself.
