Forty Days by Stephanie Parent
(Neima’s Ark, Book One)
Release Date:  12th February 2013
Genre: YA
Cover Artist: Najla Qamber
*
The entire
village knows Neima’s grandfather is a madman.
For years the old man has prophesied that a great flood is coming, a
flood disastrous enough to blot out the entire earth.  He’s even built an enormous ark that he
claims will allow his family to survive the deluge.  But no one believes the ravings of a lunatic…
 
…until the rain
starts.  And doesn’t stop. 
 
Soon
sixteen-year-old Neima finds her entire world transformed, her life and those
of the people she loves in peril.
Trapped on the ark with her grandfather Noah, the rest of her family,
and a noisy, filthy, and hungry assortment of wild animals, will Neima find a
way to survive?
 
With lions,
tigers, and bears oh my, elephants and flamingos too, along with rivalries and
betrayals, a mysterious stowaway, and perhaps even an unexpected romance, Forty Days is not your grandfather’s
Noah’s Ark story.
 
Forty Days is approximately 45000 words, the length of
a shorter novel, and is the first installment in a two-part epic story.  It does contain a cliffhanger ending.
Readers looking for a traditional, religiously
oriented version of the Noah’s Ark story should be warned that
Forty Days may
not appeal to them.  The novel will,
however, appeal to lovers of apocalyptic fiction, historical fiction, and
romance, as well as anyone who’s ever dreamed of having a baby elephant as a
pet.
