THE AQUANAUTS
There are two video chapter readings of this adventure. Watch them here or download them for later. Keep in mind these video readings are a new concept and kind of low tech so I'd love to hear what you think. Email me!

What's the story all about?
What's the skinny?
By Colleen Mondor at www.booksluts.com

I liked the adventure in The Aquanauts but I also thought it was very cool that Lunn made danger a real element to the story. This could have been a silly little lark of a book, where stuff happens and the kids prevail and they all get patted on the head and sent on their way. The four "aquanauts" find themselves literally running for their lives and the lives of everyone they love in the course of this story. They are physically hurt, they struggle against major obstacles and in the end they suffer some losses -- they pay a price for getting caught up in the uncontrollable events that surround them. To soften the blow, Lunn gives readers a nice little romance and more than a few laughs along the way, all of which combine to make this a great read. I have a very hard time finding decent young adult science fiction, and The Aquanauts is certainly the type of book that is tailor-made to start readers on a lifetime of sf reading.
