Beetiful designed the book cover for Rock Steady, the second book in the Eco-warriors series by Joanne Macgregor.
Samantha Steadman, and her best friends — smart-mouthed Jessie Delaney and politician’s daughter Nomusa Gule — are back at boarding school, in grade nine. And this year, they’re up against a whole new set of challenges.
Their creepy new Science teacher — the Poison Dwarf — takes delight in tormenting Sam, and she’s started counting and checking everything in a way that has her friends worried about her sanity. Add to that Sam’s determination to uncover and stop the illegal trade in San rock art, a blossoming new romance (or two), and a dangerous survival competition in the mountains which will endanger the trio’s lives, and the girls will need all their wits and courage to stand steady.
The ecowarriors are back in this funny, exciting sequel to Turtle Walk. This time, they aim to save the country’s invaluable rock art heritage, but along the way, they’ll discover there are other things worth taking a stand for.
Exciting and funny, this feel-good story will appeal to tweens and younger teens. Rock Steady is the second book in the Ecowarriors series, but can also be read as a standalone novel.
Note: If you’ve read Young Adult books by Joanne Macgregor before, please be aware that this book is suitable for upper middle grade – younger teen readers (10-13 years).
(This is a fully revised edition of the 2013 edition.)
