When a flash flood traps Zack and his foster brother Peter at home, Zack takes charge to ensure their survival. Despite Zack’s past struggles with anger and heartbreak, his foster parents’ love and support have helped him manage his ADHD. Peter, also grappling with ADHD as well as fetal alcohol spectrum disorder, mirrors Zack’s own troubled past. In Gabrielle Prendergast’s book for young adults, Flash Flood (Orca $10.95), due out in August, Zack must navigate the dangerous situation while keeping Peter safe as the floodwaters rise and the town evacuates. They face a critical decision: wait out the flood or attempt a risky escape. Will Zack’s leadership and resilience be enough to protect them both? 9781459838215
