In Jason Pamment's middle-grade graphic novel debut, two kids unintentionally unearth a lost city and a tale of friendship long-forgotten. Grand adventure stories often begin where you least expect them. Iris knows this because she's read them all. However, as a thirteen-year-old stuck in the tiny town of Bugden, real adventure seems a distant dream. But when Iris and her best friend Sam stumble upon an unusually dry river on the outskirts of town, they're led to a discovery beyond anything Iris has ever read about: a hidden city and a forgotten tale of friendship. Can Iris and Sam uncover the truth in time to keep their own friendship afloat, or will history repeat itself and pull them apart forever? Available in softcover and hardcover editions.
