Set in an imaginary past where giant airships rule the skies, Airborn is the story of Matt Cruse, the fifteenyear- old cabin boy of the 900-foot luxury airship Aurora. Hundreds of feet over the Pacificus Ocean, Matt fearlessly performs a dramatic rescue to save an old man from his crippled hot-air balloon. Before he dies, the stranger tells Matt about the fantastic, impossible creatures he has seen flying through the clouds. Matt dismisses the story as the ravings of a dying man, but when a beautiful, bold girl arrives on the Aurora a year later, determined to prove the story is true, Matt finds himself caught up in her quest. But can he and Kate solve the mystery-before pirates, shipwreck, and frightening predators end their voyage forever?

To be published by HarperCollins in the US and Hodder Children's Books in the UK in spring 2004, Airborn is a swashbuckling adventure, a mystery, a tale of growing up and acceptance-all rolled into a fantastical, cinematic masterwork of storytelling. Narrated by Matt, whose hopes and fears are reflected in every teen's life, this is also a book driven by the discovery of impossible flying creatures that are as dangerous as they are beautiful.

Backed by a massive marketing campaign and the star power of its author, Airborn is set to sail into our literary stratosphere.
