16-year-old Bella and Vipulan are part of a generation convinced that its very future is in danger. Between climate change and the 6th mass extinction of wildlife, their world could well be uninhabitable 50 years from now. They have sounded the alarm over and over, but nothing has really changed. So they’ve decided to tackle the root of the problem: our relationship with the living world. Over the course of an extraordinary journey, they come to realize just how deeply humans are tied to all other living species. And that by saving them... we’re also saving ourselves.
