  • Terrific, haunting dystopian story!!

    Wow!! What a story this is and I think it should be required reading for anyone who doesn't think climate change is a big deal. This story presents a world in complete chaos from the rapid warming from climate change and the resulting societal collapse is frightening. The resulting food shortages, collapse of industry and mass deaths have led to a law that requires any new birth to be offset by a death. When the child reaches the age of 18, the child chooses which parent is to die, and this is the means to control world population and give the rest of humanity a chance to survive. The story follows Miri who is 2 days from her 18th birthday and choosing which of her mother's is to die. She has previously left home and thinks she knows exactly what she will do but events happen that may change everything. Her mom Jac is one of the most important scientists on the planet trying to reduce the amount of carbon in the atmosphere and reduce the potential heating of the earth. Her other mom Alix is a nurse. Just before the offset is to happen, Jac discovers there is something very odd going on with her forest experiment in Greenland and the consequences may doom humanity. This novel really does do a phenomenal job of conveying what some potential consequences of climate change are and it is sobering. The reality that some of these changes are possibly not in the too distant future should be a wake up call to everyone that we need to make systemic changes now or it will be too late. Highly recommend this to any science fiction fans!!

    Thanks for your feedback!
