    Description

    In a climate-ravaged future, it’s not easy to grow up. One girl is trying her best in a story about global catastrophe and personal chaos, by the New York Times bestselling author of California.

    Thirteen-year-old Vic is of the Youngest Generation, fixed in prepubescence after a catastrophic environmental degradation. She’s also her father’s favorite student. But when he takes his own life, the perennially ingenuous Vic wants to understand why. As she sets out on her quest, Vic begins to learn that family isn’t something you’re born with - it’s something you build.

    Edan Lepucki’s There’s No Place Like Home is part of Warmer, a collection of seven visions of a conceivable tomorrow by today’s most thought-provoking authors. Alarming, inventive, intimate, and frightening, each story can be read, or listened to, in a single breathtaking sitting.

    Almost

    It’s nice to have stories that are relevant but its a bit lackluster. It’s also misguided with the assumption that climate change just causes warm weather and not extreme hot AND cold weather. And although the narrator has a pleasant personality, the cadence is distracting.

    Boring and incomplete story. Don’t waste your time

    Boring and incomplete story. Don’t waste your time. Narration is just ok, but she had bad material to work with

    Great story, poor narration

    The narration was very distracting for me. The several characters weren't defined properly in the narration. It ruined the mood a little bit.
    I liked the story and the setting.

    DYSTOPIAN

    The days of an uninhabitable Earth are numbered decades beyond our time. A bright young girl will never grow up as the harsh conditions will consume the unlucky people who lacked funds to escape the grim eventual reality. The story boils down to the girl's relationship with her recently departed Dad and answers she is trying to get from her Mom.

    The only disappointment for me is that I wanted to know how and when the planet would end, even though it would have taken things beyond this intimately well written tale. Narration was excellent.

    Great Story, Superb Narration

    I really enjoyed this story. Even though the narrator and her family were going thriugh tough times, they were each trying to cope with the circumstances in their own ways. For such a short work, all the characters were very well-developed, and I fekt personally invested in all of them. Very absorbing story. I hope that someday Edan Lepucki expands it into a novel.

    There's no place like home

    Very interesting story, Audible was excellent and exciting. It really made the reading easy, and comfortable since I have been having problems with my eyes due to aging. Will always use Audible

    Deep human foibles and survival

    Interesting tale of family struggles, love and despair, set in a believable, dystopian future
