Wow what an incredibly touching and moving story about the lives of those whose homes have been destroyed. It is such a unique story where each of the thirty authors have written a chapter each but it also has parts that are written by people that have had to rebuild their lives after a disaster. The story really shows the impact Climate Change has on the world, and how a community can pull together in tough times. It taught me some things too about Climate Change that that I didn’t know about. I love that fact is it so unique and a story that I cannot wait to recommend to people as I feel everyone can learn a thing or two from this book. I also love that at the end of the book, there is a bit where it explains the story behind the story. This story has really touched me and I will not forget it.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
