      The Light at the Bottom of the World (Audiobook)

      by London Shah

      Dec 2020

      Audiobooks High

      In the last days of the twenty-first century, sea creatures swim through the ruins of London. Trapped in the abyss, humankind wavers between fear and hope—fear of what lurks in the depths around them, and hope that they might one day find a way back to the surface.

      When sixteen-year-old submersible racer Leyla McQueen is chosen to participate in the city’s prestigious annual marathon, she sees an opportunity to save her father, who has been arrested on false charges. The Prime Minister promises the champion whatever their heart desires. But the race takes an unexpected turn, forcing Leyla to make an impossible choice. Now she must brave unfathomable waters and defy a corrupt government determined to keep its secrets, all the while dealing with a guarded, hotheaded companion she never asked for in the first place. If Leyla fails to discover the truths at the heart of her world, or falls prey to her own fears, she risks capture—or worse. And her father will be lost to her forever.

      The second book in the "Iggy" series about the lovable troublemaker by New York Times bestselling author Annie Barrows ("Ivy + Bean").

      One thing led to another…

      Have you ever heard those words? Sometimes it means “Things got better.” That’s not what it means in this book. In this book, Iggy gets an idea—a perfectly fine idea—and then, unfortunately, the principal shows up, and then, even more unfortunately, there’s an incident with a basketball, and then, before you know it, Iggy’s flying through the air.

      How did it all happen? It’s really hard to explain. You’d better read the book.
