Description

“A whip-smart tale that asks big, bold questions of how we can save the planet.” Laura Lam

“A smart, brilliantly realized call to arms.” The Observer

“Frighteningly clever and richly imagined.” Laura Wood, author of A Sky Painted Gold

In a climate catastrophe … resistance is taking root.

Gabrielle is a climate-change activist who shoots to fame when she becomes the first teenager to display a supernatural ability to grow plants from her skin. Hester is the millionaire daughter of an oil tycoon and the face of the family business. Theo comes from a long line of fishermen, but his parents are struggling to make ends meet.

On the face of it, the three have very little in common. Yet when Hester and Theo join Gabrielle and legions of other teenagers around the world in developing the strange new “Greenfingers” power, it becomes clear that to use their ability for good, they’ll need to learn to work together.

As they navigate first love and family expectations, can the three teenagers pull off the ultimate heist and bring about a green rising?

Publisher Review

"Green Rising is a whip-smart tale that asks big, bold questions of how we can save the planet, with or without Greenfinger magic. Beautiful imagery, a strong scientific underpinning and well-rounded characters. A must-read for teens today." * Laura Lam, Sunday Times bestselling author of Goldilocks and Seven Devils * "Frighteningly clever and richly imagined, Green Rising is a book that combines lush, compulsive storytelling with an urgent message, and everyone who reads it will be stirred by its call to arms. I loved it." * Laura Wood, author of A Sky Painted Gold * [...] this is a terrifically bold and original take on climate fiction. * The Bookseller *
