About the Book

As the dust settles after the world’s worst natural disaster, eleven-year-old Lowky Tick fears the worst. His home is destroyed, and as far as he can see so is the world around him. Alone and forced to fend for himself, Lowky is driven by a fierce desire to maintain his independence and will do anything not to be found. To do this he must find a sustainable way to live. Out on the streets the devastated survivor finds his best friend Matilda, and together they decide it is time to find a new home.


The Tick Tribe is an inspiring and humorous adventure story for tweens and teenagers. What these brave, young friends quickly learn is that teamwork and positive thinking can overcome even the darkest challenges. Soon the pair’s intelligence, resilience and creativity are noticed by others and a diverse and courageous tribe begins to form.
