Summary

Bloomsbury presents The Summer We Turned Green by William Sutcliffe, read by Sam Newton.

It’s the summer holidays and 13-year-old Luke has just had his life turned upside down. First his older sister, Rose, moved 'across the road’ - where a community of climate rebels are protesting the planned airport expansion - and now his dad’s gone, too. Dad only went to get Rose back, but he’s out there building totem poles out of old furniture and wearing sandals and drinking mead (whatever that is) with the best of them....

Luke is determined to save his dad, his sister AND his summer. So how does he find himself at the top of a tree refusing to leave until the bulldozers stand down? 

A fresh, funny, heartfelt look at this generation’s must-win battle: one earth, one chance.
