Four teenagers displaced by climate change.
WIND How will Isla fix her family in a world that’s blown apart?
EARTH Can a romance bloom for artist Ava, even in a land that’s parched?
WATER Will songwriter Xenia find the words to express her flooding heart?
FIRE How will Natasha put out the fire but still hold on to her spark?
For those coming of age in a time of uncertainty, it’s no longer a question of whether they will be impacted by climate change but when. In this ring of stories from debut author Leela Marie Hidier, four young people find sanctuary—and strength—in their families, friends, communities, and even strangers. Along the way, they learn to use their voices to create change and discover what home really means.
