Description

An astounding tale about a dangerous quest in an eerie post–climate collapse world.

A long time ago, the Vanderchucks fled the growing climate disaster and followed their neighbours into the Underground. Jesse Vanderchuck thought it was the end. Of the world. Of life. Eventually, Jesse’s little sister, Olivia, ran away and Jesse started picking through trash heaps in Toronto’s abandoned subway tunnels. Day in, day out.

Then, years later, Jesse meets a talking dog.

Fighting illness and the hostile world aboveground, Jesse and Doggo embark on a fool’s errand to find Olivia — or die trying. Along the way, Jesse spins a series of fairy tales from threads of memories, weaving together the past, present, and future into stories of brave girls, of cunning lads, of love in the face of wickedness, and of hope in the midst of despair.

Editorial Review

A fantastical and magical debut infused with heart, longing and our need for companionship. A story within a story, Brewes skillfully guides the reader through a dystopian landscape where, against all odds, dreams and hope continue to thrive.

— Brian Francis, author of Break in Case of Emergency
