The third novel in the series, Tales From A Warming Planet
In a near-future world threatened by climate disaster, a sassy, independent city girl finds herself in a small, conservative town where she meets a young man who challenges everything she believes. Junie Wye is an urbane 17-year-old forced to move from her big city to a divided desert town. Her dad, Ed, has a difficult, dangerous job: removing an enormous hydroelectric dam blocking a beautiful river. Junie meets Don Rast, whose father, Covington, opposes taking down the dam. Though the government wants it taken away, others will do anything to keep it, including sabotage and threats. Meanwhile, a conspiracy brews that could mean the deaths of thousands downstream. Will Junie and Don overcome their parents’ hostility? Is the dam a million-ton bomb waiting to go off?
