Romain crafts an exceptionally poetic, visual, and cinematic world to promote the release of his first book entitled, Gary Cook. Gary Cook is one of the last refugees on a condemned Earth. At the age of fifteen, he spends most of his time with his friends, Max and Elliott, aboard the Neptune, their modest fishing boat. The three friends revel in glorious catches and adventures, but despite their moments of joy, the world is coming to an end, and every year, huge shuttles emerge up from the sea to escape into space. Gary, Max, and Elliott must now take incredible risks if they want to survive by making it onto a shuttle.
