The Seismic Seven

Brianna Dobson didn’t plan to spend her summer saving the world from total destruction. But what starts as an educational experience shadowing geologist Dr. Samantha Grier in Yellowstone National Park quickly becomes a race to stop a massive volcanic eruption the likes of which the humanity has never seen.


Seven kids. One supervolcano. One chance to save the world.

Praise for The Seismic Seven:

Slivensky masterfully blends geology and fantasy to create a provocative adventure that tests the skills, wits, maturity, and camaraderie of seven brave teens. Bri’s first-person account solidly relates the plot while allowing for the full development of all characters. Even readers with little science background will be pulled into this riveting story.


Plot twist after plot twist keeps the story moving at a fast pace until the end. ...An engaging adventure with a high-stakes plot and a timely message about preserving the environment.




SMALLER: The Search for Subatomic Particles

In Slivensky's non-fiction debut, follow the amazing journeys scientists have undertaken to discover the smallest pieces of our universe, even as the searches themselves have resulted in some of the hugest experiments ever attempted. Ever. From World Wars to ferrets in diapers, the stories behind the bizarre field of particle physics can at times seem totally outlandish—but just like every particle in our universe, they each have an important role to play.

Coming 2025 from Algonquin Young Readers.
