This is one of the best novels I’ve read yet about trying to live with and survive the near-future impacts of climate breakdown. The prose is occasionally poetic or lyrical, but generally straightforward and matter of fact. What I especially like is that it's mostly showing, without much telling. It asks the reader to engage. Overall, this book is beautifully written, touching, sad, and haunting. A real gem, highly recommended.
