Waterstones Says

Wry and knowing yet impassioned and powerful, this funny and important book from the author of The Gifted, the Talented and Me details an exasperated boy's attempts to understand his family's new-found ecological awareness.

Longlisted for the James Cropper Wainwright Prize for Children's Writing on Nature & Conservation 2022

A fresh, funny, heartfelt look at this generation's must-win battle: one earth, one chance. It's the summer holidays, and thirteen-year-old Luke's life has been turned upside down.

First his older sister Rose moved 'across the road', where a community of climate rebels is protesting the planned airport expansion. Then his dad followed her. Dad only went to get Rose back, but now he's out there building totem poles, wearing sandals and drinking mead (whatever that is) with the best of them...

Can Luke save his family when all they want to do is save the planet?

'This is the perfect book to inspire action against the climate crisis and to lift your spirits.' - The Scotsman

'William Sutcliffe's latest hilarious read for teens... resists talking down to its readers as it tackles climate change and environmental protests... the questions posed by this smart, entertaining page-turner are the big ones for our age' - Irish Times

'Hilarious, acutely observed and deeply felt, Sutcliffe's new novel is part biting satire on nimbyism and adult complacency, part impassioned call: take action now, before it's too late.' - Guardian
