    Thank you to the publisher for an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest opinion.Climate change has been something I ve been trying to keep in mind in my daily life and to take action accordingly where I can, but it s not something I ve really seen in fiction before, hence why I requested this book.Marlo I assume her name is a portmanteau of both her parents names has grown up on an exclusive commune type community for the wea
