"Written by a remarkable family and told through the voice of an iconoclastic mother, Our House Is on Fire is the story of how they fought their problems at home by taking global action. And it is the story of how Greta decided to go on strike from school, igniting a worldwide rebellion"--

Booklist Review: "The personal is political, but even more fundamentally the personal is environmental. Every human is dependent on the biosphere, yet, in spite of dire warnings about fossil fuels and global warming, we've failed to mobilize. Enter a young Swedish activist, Greta Thunberg, who, with preternatural poise and deep, lucid understanding of climate change and the urgency it demands, courageously speaks truth to power. So clarion is Greta's uncompromising call to action, Time magazine named her Person of the Year, and now this blazingly candid family memoir reveals the grueling and bewildering struggles that propelled Greta onto the world stage. When we first meet her, she is unable to eat or speak, battered by bullying and in shock over environmental abominations. After much anguish and effort and a diagnosis which includes Asperger's, Greta slowly regains her strength, forges her conviction, and embarks on the school strike outside the Swedish parliament which launched her galvanizing global campaign. Narrated primarily by her mother, opera singer Malena Ernman, with passages from Greta, her sister, and their father, and written in brief, hard-hitting "scenes," this is an unnerving and profoundly enlightening chronicle of the symbiosis between human and planetary health as manifest within one remarkable family whose painful awakening to our "acute sustainability crisis" should embolden us all."
