    Interesting story taking place in a future that has been severely altered by climate change, with a message to us now: Take care of the planet. It's the only one we have.

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Find the full review at https://spinesinaline.wordpress.com A very inspiring tale, warning about climate change and how we can change to save our world. Despite the heavy subject matter and intended message, the author manages to avoid coming across as preachy by spinning a creative story to share this message. This really felt like a great addition to the apocalyptic/cli-fi genre, taking a unique turn by looking at the long-term eff I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This really felt like a great addition to the apocalyptic/cli-fi genre, taking a unique turn by looking at the long-term effects of global warming, rather than all of it happening in one day. I had problems with the dialogue and time span. The dialogue of the main character was much older than her, especially since she lives at least 80 years in the future, so it was a major disconnect with her age. There were also several time jumps in the book but while one character aged many years, another would only age a couple years, so the author seemed to have lost track of how much time had actually passed. I liked the overall story but these aspects did prevent me from fully connecting with the characters.

    Far from your typical futuristic novel, Vincent Lowry manages to make his story seem eerily current. It's set sometime in the future, yes, when California is on its 86th year of drought and New Orleans is a mass of sludge. Showers automatically cut off after two minutes and Maine is the new Florida. Life isn't cool, to say the least. But, what drew me into this book is the universal story of a girl trying to figure out where she fits in. Her past is as murky as the Big Easy.

This quick read will not only satisfy your desire for a meaty story of triumph over tragedy, but it will make you think twice before you run the water while brushing your teeth, too.

    The book came as a gift from author, which I really appreciate :) Thank you :) This is my first review for 2016, as always I promise myself to write more reviews this year... This is a nice small book, which can easily be on a school reading list, in order to raise awareness for climate changes. Maybe some parts can be brutal for little children, but estimated stories are so realistic that it make you think about what you are doing to this world. And it is not like book gives you lessons..

There is a main story, and side stories which gives you a realistic scope for future, what to expect etc. I recommend it :)

    I decided to take this e book to review. the author was giving some copies out. tho it took me a few days to read it, and it is a small book, it was really interesting. I think it takes place more in the future with alot of gobal warming issues going on but in more depth it seems. It was a good read, about a young girl growing up with all these issues going on around her. Its a great book with a real good story, almost like a thriller I would say. I would read more books by this author

    The Gold family has its' secrets and for Lucy it is something horrific from her past that she finds out about. The author did a good job with this story, I think it is best read to older kids and young adults as it does have some things younger children may not understand, I liked that the author used climate change as a backdrop for the book and found this an interesting read, the first I have read from this author.Thanks for the gift of this book.

    I was fortunate enough to win this book through Goodreads Giveaways. As a person who is concerned for the future of the Earth, this was just the ticket. Well written, a lovely little story with a big message. Kudos to you, Mr. Lowry.

    Nice short book. I was able to read it in under 5 hours straight. Nice fiction non fiction book. few errors/typos (but I hated the regular use of brackets like this). on the one hand, each chapter was a snapshot of Lucy's life from her birth to when she was a grandmom. on the other hand it looked at the impact of global warming in the future Nice short book.

    This story was just interesting enough to keep me reading. But, at no time did it excite or thrill me. It gave a good message but nothing that I haven't heard before. This was just a different way of delivering that message. This story was just interesting enough to keep me reading. But, at no time did it excite or thrill me.
