A climate-change thriller set in a near-future world that’s closer than we want to believe
Hester, Theo and Gabrielle have grown up knowing that Earth is doomed. The acceleration of climate changes means that the planet will soon be uninhabitable, and while those who are rich enough can escape to Mars, the rest of the population will be left to their fate.
But in the year that the ice caps finally melt, teenagers around the world begin developing strange powers – the ability to grow plants with their minds. The only hope for reversing climate change seems to lie with these Greenfingers. But there are plenty of profit-hungry organizations who want to use them for their own ends. And not everyone would like to see Earth saved…
In a time of widespread corruption and greed, can three teenagers pull off the ultimate heist and bring about a green rising?
A Young Adult climate change thriller about nature, geoengineering and civil disobedience in the face of overwhelming corporate negligence. Scheduled for publication in September 2021 with Walker Books.
