Overview

No adults, no way out, kids everywhere ... chaos, welcome back to Verdada.

When Edsel Grizzler left Verdada, longing for a normal home life, he was told he could never return. But when he receives a desperate note from Verdada, pleading for his help, Edsel must embark on another, greater adventure – a rescue mission.

Back in Verdada, the rules have changed. The Mira are gone, the kids are alone and fending for themselves. Things are chaotic and Ben is struggling to maintain order. It’s up to Edsel to step in before it is too late. Is Jacq the key to their survival? Will Edsel’s bold mission be a success? Or will Verdada – and the children – be lost forever?

James Roy was born in country NSW in 1968. When he was very young, his family moved to Papua New Guinea and later to Fiji, where he spent much of his childhood adventuring by day and reading by night.

Since his first novel was published in 1996, James has written over twenty books for young people, including the CBCA Honour Books Captain Mack and Billy Mack’s War, several Notable Books in the same awards, and Anonymity Jones, which won the young adult category of the Western Australian Premier’s Book Awards in 2011. His short story collection Townwas awarded the Ethel Turner Prize in the NSW Premier’s Awards in 2008 and was shortlisted for several other awards, including the prestigious German Youth Literature Prize.

When he isn’t speaking at schools and festivals across Australia and beyond, James lives with his family in a creaky 100-year-old house in the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney. In his increasingly limited spare time he enjoys music, art and photography.
