Bertagna, Julie

Tagged: Author

(1962-    ) Scottish author who has concentrated until recently on books for younger children; her Young Adult sf Exodus sequence comprising Exodus (2002), Zenith (2007) and Aurora (2011), is a tale of global warming (see Climate Change) beginning in 2099, continuing into the early twenty-second century and skipping forward to 2116 in the third volume. The ocean rises sufficiently to force the evacuation of a small Scottish island; led by a young girl, the islanders examine several other communities (en passant Glasgow too is drowned) searching for a place they can call home.
