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?________________________'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'This is the perfect book to inspire action against the climate crisis and to lift your spirits.' SCOTSMAN'A heartfelt, well-observed, gripping family drama, as well as a call to arms.' SUNDAY TIMES Children's Book of the Week
