Storyboard Text

  • before chapter 1
  • then chapter 2
  • chapter 3
  • Floodland takes place in the near future, where most of the United Kingdom is submerged underwater. Norwich has become an island, with food and water increasingly scarce. The story follows the journey of Zoe, a young girl who accidently gets left behind by her parents during a boat evacuation from the island.
  • Chapter 4
  • Zoe could see their eyes, clearly. She saw fear. But she couldn’t trust them. Since she’d lost her parents, she’d made it a rule not to trust anyone. Zoe had heard people say they’d lost someone, which really meant they had died. In Zoe’s case, ‘lost’ meant exactly that. It was still unbelievable, and so stupid.
  • chapter 5
  • eft to fend for herself, the evacuations stop coming and the people who are left become increasingly aggressive and disorganised. When Zoe finds an old boat, she commits to repairing it and making it seaworthy. The main plot involves Zoe’s quest to sail after her parents, and the problems she encounters along the way once she discovers the dangerous Eels island.
  • after chapter 6
  • Led by a boy named Dooby, Eels island is a collection of delusional survivors hanging onto their leader’s every word. They call themselves the Eels and don’t seem a friendly bunch at all. The ocean is advancing, and so are other groups with similar strange animal names such as the Cats, Pigs and Horses. Zoe must escape and fast.
  • This environment is vividly realised and the narrative constantly tugs at your heartstrings without resorting to cheap tactics. The endless water helps the reader share a sense of claustrophobia and hopelessness with Zoe as she defies her fate and struggles onward. Her determination quickly earns the reader’s respect and her relationships with an old man named William and a young boy named Munchkin are particularly touching.
  • when Zoe finaly escapes the island and finds her parents she gets even more upset knowing that her parents could have came back for her but didnt then she finds out she has a new born baby brother and calls it william which pulls on the readers heart strings.
