"An optimistic parable about idealism, activism, and systemic corruption, centered on a naïve young woman's quest for agency in a world ravaged by climate change. Willa Marks has spent her whole life choosing hope. She chooses hope over her parents' paranoid conspiracy theories, over her dead-end job at a donut shop, over the rising ocean levels. And when she meets Sylvia Gill, renowned Harvard professor, she feels sure she's found the justification of that hope. Sylvia is the woman-in-black, an avenging warrior, the only person smart and sharp enough to wake up the world and force it to take action. But when Sylvia betrays her, Willa fears she has lost hope forever. And then she finds a book in Sylvia's library: a guide to fighting climate change called Living the Solution. Inspired by its message and with nothing to lose, Willa flies down to the island of Eleutheria in the Bahamas to join the author and his group of ecowarriors at Camp Hope. Upon arrival, things are not what she expected. The crew's leader, author Roy Adams, is missing, and the camp's public launch is delayed. With time running out, Willa will stop at nothing to realize Camp Hope's mission--but at what cost?"-- Provided by publisher.
