Book Description: In a near tomorrow, Gen journeys from her lonely family farm in search of a gleaming utopia filled with excitement, new friends… maybe even love. But Earth’s fury tumbles her into a brutish world beyond her imagination. Where nature is a nemesis. Humanity is hostile. And no place is safe. As Gen struggles to survive in this nightmare, others seek to use the dark-skinned girl’s secrets against her. Now she must battle rough men and terrible beasts to find her way home.

“The popularity of the climate fiction genre has exploded as people across America see the devastating effects of wind, sun, and wave, making living on planet Earth a trial by fire,” says publisher spokesperson Art Radley. “Authors Kim Stanley Robinson, Emily St. John Mandel, Cormac McCarthy, and Margaret Atwood have all explored these prescient themes.”
