Blurb (from Goodreads):
THE CLIMATE IS CHANGING. Thousands are fleeing the chaos and social unrest. With their own water and power supplies, fourteen year old Nairne and her family are well prepared, but most people are less fortunate. When Nairne persuades her father, Daniel, to house some of the evacuees on their small holding in the south of Scotland she plunges the family into a world of violence, deception and murder. With society at breaking point, she has to grow up quickly as she discovers that the fortress Daniel built to give his children a chance has become the prize in a struggle where winning can mean the difference between life and death.
My rating: 3.7 of 5 stars
This was an interesting YA apocalyptic story, with a focus on climate change as the main cause of the problems.
I felt so sorry for Nairne in this story, every time something bad happened, it happened to her, and every time I thought that things were bad, they got worse! She lost so much in such a short space of time, and the world was so unfair to her.
The storyline in this was about Nairne and her family when climate change began to be a real problem. Many parts of England became flooded and uninhabitable, and Nairne and her family offered to take a family into their home since theirs was unliveable. Things just got worse and worse though, and I got so angry with certain people in this book! How some people can be so awful I don’t know, but I really hope they get what’s coming to them!
The ending to this was pretty good, but I need to read the next one to find out what happens next!
