Oceania: The Underwater City
Book 1 of Oceania: The Underwater City Series
The year is 2276. Oceans have risen. Oil has run out long ago. The human population has skyrocketed to over 14 billion people. Decades and hundreds of years of pollution, bad waste management, and limiting food resources have caused countless natural disasters and diseases, damaging our world. The worldwide Great Plague of 2083 disturbed world governments that if another such outbreak occurred, the extinction of humanity would be imminent.
The solution? Oceania. A city lying over two miles beneath the surface was supposed to be the secret experimental human civilization under the sea. Only the best and the brightest from each country around the world was selected to move there. Everyone the top of their respective fields holding the highest degrees possible for their profession.
So, what happens when a bored, yet curious fourteen-year-old girl named Allie trespasses on a restricted government beach with direct access to the city? She stumbles upon a boy her age from Oceania, who was convinced that his city held the only human survivors on earth. Curiosity getting the best of her, Allie accepts his invitation to visit the city. She discovers a world so different from her own that she can’t help but visit it again and again, turning her boring summer with her grandmother into an adventure of a lifetime.
But will Allie and the boy’s friendship ruin the secrecy of the experimental city Oceania? Or will Allie be discovered as an outsider on one of their frequent trips to Oceania and be barred from ever leaving?
Oceania: The Underwater City is a young adult sci-fi novel packed with exploratory underwater adventures, science, and more. It is a story about friendship, courage, and finding one’s place in the world.

Unable to risk infection by returning home, Allie is forced to find a place in the highly academic society of Oceania. While the Above World scrambles to find a cure to the deadly plague, Allie struggles to find her place in the community that she’s illegally become a part of. Will she be able to find her place amongst the Oceanians or will the perfection-based haven be too much for her to handle?

Excerpt from Oceania: The Underwater City
I laughed disbelievingly. “You’ve got to be kidding me. Is this some joke? Some play on the lost city of Atlantis. Am I on a prank show?”
“No, Allie.” Dylan took two steps closer to me. “I’m telling you the truth. It was an experiment to see if mankind could survive beneath the sea in a self-sustaining environment. Space was too far away and too complicated to evacuate large masses of people in a hurry, leaving the ocean as the alternative.”
I shook my head again, backing away slowly. He was crazy. Insane!
“Allie, perhaps that is the reason this beach is off-limits. No one is allowed to come here because it has the most direct access to Oceania.”
I stopped backing away. Okay, maybe Dylan was insane, but he really seemed to be thoroughly engrossed in his insanity. He truly believed in this underwater city where people lived to ensure the survival of mankind. Perhaps, the best thing was to placate him by playing along. Besides, there was no one else around for a couple of miles. If Dylan tried to drag me into the sea, no one would hear me scream. Perhaps, it’d be best to let him keep talking and try to find out more. Hopefully, he wouldn’t realize I’d caught on to his lunacy. “How could an entire city be built in secret, especially underwater?”
“You don’t believe me, do you?” Dylan’s shoulders slumped slightly.
“To be honest, Dylan, even with this holographic image hovering in front of me, no I don’t. I don’t understand how an underwater city could be fully self-sustaining so far beneath the surface or why it would have to be a secret experiment. I simply cannot fathom what an underwater city would be like or why you’re even telling me about this.”
Dylan’s entire face brightened as he reached out for my hand. “I’m telling you about this place because I want to take you there.”
