Dance Of The Freaky Green Gold
All Books are second hand
This is a story that manages to explain some quite complex scientific facts in a very accessible manner. Global warming and the Kyoto Protocols are extremely topical. The scientific experiment is to turn algae into bio-fuels, and the details are intriguingly conveyed, with the photographs and diagrams contributing to the clarity. The initial plot-impetus of a parental divorce and break-up of the home will impact on teen readers, as will the dislocation of moving to a new home and school. The element of the mysterious will intrigue, and the shading in of a love interest will be recognisable and familiar.
