Apocalypse by Tim Bowler, pounds 5.99 (Oxford University Press

THIS has got to be one of Tim's most explosive stories to date: it digs its claws in and just won't let go.

A story as breathless as it is daring, the storm strikes at the end of Windflower's final voyage. Kit's father is bankrupt and, before their beloved boat - along with everything else - is sold off, the family is taking one last trip.

Not just coastal stuff, but a real adventure, weeks and weeks of nonstop sailing. But when the wind forces the boat onto rocks and the family is forced to battle to safety, they find themselves shipwrecked on a remote island.

Not for the faint-hearted, even Tim says the story frightened him at first. But beneath the horror tale is a deeper story about a young boy's desperate battle to survive our world and what we are doing to it
