It's 2045 and Prix Chan is beginning her National Service. Her father, Pierre, believes she can handle it but her mother, Su, is hysterical at the thought of her daughter leaving the safety of Singapore's Green Underwater Metropolis, the Bubble G.U.M., a self-sufficient city-state protected three miles beneath the waves by a dome of chewing gum.

Little does anyone know that in less than a week Prix will cause the biggest crisis to hit Singapore since the planet went into meltdown creating a world of water and a human civilisation on the brink of annihilation.

A collaborative novel from Happy Smiley (aka, the six members of the Happy Smiley Writers Group), Bubble G.U.M. is out to prove that thought-stretching sci-fi literature and revealing bikinis are not mutually exclusive.
