WRATH: extreme anger or rage

Cassie Cotton has always been unusual, a bit different – but this only makes her more intriguing to her classmate Fitz.

Cassie can hear a noise that most people don’t notice or recognise, and she believes it’s a sound that shows the Earth is in distress, damaged by human activity that is causing climate change.

When this belief leads to her being ridiculed and bullied at school, Cassie disappears. Fitz is determined to find her, but he has no idea where to start looking, or if he’ll be in time to help her…
