In Rick Riordan’s exhilarating new read, Daughter of the Deep, you’ll deep-dive into the action-packed world of freshman Ana Dakkar and her classmates at the mysterious (and downright fishy) Harding-Pencroft Academy.

Harding-Pencroft is responsible for training some of the best young marine scientists, naval warriors, navigators, and underwater explorers in the world. Their gifted pupils are divided into four marine Houses (Shark, Dolphin, Cephalopod, and Orca), based on their unique skills and talents. Care to see where you place? 

Take a deep breath and choose wisely, young thalassophile (don’t worry, you’ll learn that one at Harding-Pencroft Academy); your specific skills will be put to the test at this school.
