Review by Mia Madden, aged 11.
This is the third, and final installment in the SeaBEAN Trilogy. *Sad Face*.
I this book, it is 2018 and the C-Bean (a time-travel machine) is about to be taken away for a tune-up. Alice and friends decide to have a sleepover beforehand but, when it turns midnight, the gang get taken to 2118 by a guy called Commander Hadron.
They see the St. Kilda as a very diffferent place, in the future, and it is not good. Half of it is underwater, the sky is weird shade of green and the kids even have problems breathing.
Alice is trying to get everyone back to 2018. A new friend from the future is introduced, Rudy, a fourteen year old boy, who joins in the adventures.
SeaRISE is another wonderful installment which teaches us to look after the world we live in. This means travelling forward in time as well as backwards. Although this sounds very confusing, it's not when you are reading it.
I am going to miss Alice a lot. I will have to find a new amazing book series to keep me occupied now. I really hope to visit St. Kilda one day, myself. I will really miss all the adventures involving the C-Bean but who knows, maybe someday in the future, a magical box will appear in my garden!
I would like to thank the author, Sarah Holding, for letting me read her awesome books. I may be her biggest fan and will continue to spread the word about the SeaBean Trilogy. She kindly invited me to her launch party in London, but I can't make it over the sea this time. I certainly hope we get to meet sometime in the future (but not TOO far into the future)!
