Invited to the world’s only undersea research station, Ezzy, Luke, and their father head to the Florida Keys and dive into an unexpected adventure. While visiting their ex-military friends in the Aquarius Sea Station, Ezzy and Luke encounter a strange algae bloom at the surface, giant goliath groupers, and a mysterious fish that threatens the coral reefs and their own safety. It’s another wild ride filled with humor and action as Ezzy Skylar explores the depths of her courage while overcoming her insecurities. With new friends, she and Luke discover the wonders of the undersea world and what it is like to live underwater. But once again they unwittingly stumble into a plot that could have disastrous consequences for the local wildlife and must jump into action to save the day.


"Readers need not be familiar with previous entries to enjoy this latest installment. The book concludes with websites pointing readers to youth-friendly organizations working in ocean conservation as well as those offering guidance on marine science careers. Further breathlessly paced escapades, well stocked with moments of terror and undersea wonders." —Laura Simeon, Kirkus editor

"Escape Undersea is a stellar addition to the Wonder List Adventures series. Dr. Ellen Prager continues to create an engaging tale that takes the reader on an exciting path to experience new things while learning about science and environmental issues.... I especially love the Real vs Made-Up section to explain the real science versus fiction at the conclusion of the story." —Lisa Mongelia, History of Diving Museum Executive Director

"Immerse yourself in an underwater adventure packed with action, humor, and marine science. You'll be holding your breath-- with excitement.” —Cristina Veresan, Middle School Science Teacher

"Author Ellen Prager's latest book continues the pulse-pounding legacy of the Wonderlist series with a tale that will hook you from start to finish. Rich in story and detail, kids will be so immersed in Ezzy and Luke's adventure that they might not even notice how much they are learning about invasive species, water quality, and ecosystems. Escape Undersea is sneaky learning at its best!" —Susan Tate, 2012 Michigan Middle School Science Teacher of the Year

“An unforgettable dive into the world of ocean exploration – Escape Undersea weaves adventure with real-world marine science and conservation, inspiring readers to keep the pages turning while instilling an understanding of the role we all play in protecting our ocean planet.” – Sean Russell, Youth Ocean Conservation Summit Director
