Mystery, bullying threats and huge global problems – they’re the challenges to be faced in this new story for readers aged 11 to 15 years by the award-winning author, Anna Heussaff. SÁRÚ is suitable as a classroom reader and includes a helpful glossary at the back of the book.
SÁRÚ is Anna Heussaff’s third novel for young readers, with the same lead characters as Vortex (Cois Life, 2006) and Hóng (Cló Iar-Chonnacht, 2012), which won the Childrens Books Ireland Special Judges Award in 2013.
In SÁRÚ as in the other stories, real-life dangers get mixed up with a computer game that goes wrong. This time, Evan and his friend Rio are playing the brand new game SÁRÚ on a smartwatch. But will Crúb and his bullyboys stop them before they can save the world in the game? And whose side is Cara on – the girl who never laughs? Síofra, Evan’s sister, is far more worried about climate change in the real world than online, and just as Evan and Rio’s troubles mount, a disastrous storm hits their town.
