Spirit Animals – Against The Tide Book by Tui T Sutherland
Published by Scholastic Australia
This series, which must be read in order, follows four friends as they battle to save their homeland from oppression. In this book they are aware that one of the four friends could be the traitor, constantly passing on information and plans that keeps the enemy close on their heels and often ahead. Suspicion and distrust test their friendship and team spirit as the tension grows with each chapter, until a final and sudden ending.
Tui Sutherland writes with clear and engaging language and wastes no time with the action proceeding evenly throughout the chapters. The characters are constantly being tested and revealed through their thoughts and actions. I would recommend these books for advanced readers from eight to all levels of readers of twelve.
