I loved this book. I completely recognised the urgency and desperation as a mother to a generation facing the consequences of our delayed and totally inadequate reaction to climate change. I love how Lorna pieces together her life experience as a child with the journey through to motherhood in a climate crisis. Reading it brought me back to my awakening to the stark realities about 12 years ago.
