CITY SPIES meets LAST KIDS ON EARTH
Winner of the 2022 Scribbler Manuscript Contest
Winner of the 2021 Pacific Northwest Writers Association Literary Contest, Middle Grade
After tentacled machines invade Earth, twelve-year-old swashbuckling spy Rat and her best friend, cautious inventor Jack, lead a crew of “sewer-smart” orphans. When their youngest crew member gets sick, they’ll barter anything to cure him, even something they don’t have: a valuable power source from the invaders’ fortress. Time for an epic heist!
