Rip Tide by Kat Falls - ADVISABLE

Falls, Kat Rip Tide, 320 p. Scholastic, AUGUST 2011.  $17.  Ty and Gemma may have warned off the Seablite Gang and Shade, their leader, but danger still abounds on the ocean – from above and below.  Ty and his parents try to arrange a deal with the surfs so that none of them will be dependant on the mainland, but they are kidnapped instead.  And Ty makes the gruesome discovery of an entire township that has been chained and sunk – with the entire populace still inside.  The Seablite Gang is now the least of Ty’s problems as he comes face to face with all that is evil and exploitative about sea and land.  Lots of action and a little bit of plot development.  If kids can engage with the ocean setting, they will have no problem enjoying Ty’s continual diving into danger.  EL, MS – ADVISABLE.
