Xe Sands offers an excellent performance of this timely and thought-provoking audiobook. A commentary on climate change, this novel blends a view of contemporary life with a warning about a bleak future. Sands voices Evie, a teenage narrator whose dim view of adults is well justified. With her peers, she must take charge when a summer stay at a coastal mansion becomes a battle for survival. Sands balances an authentic adolescent attitude with a thoughtful, responsible tone that reflects the side of Evie that is beyond her years. Her Evie is a coolheaded figure who inspires listeners to wonder about Millet's message. The dialogue is realistic, and Sands's pacing is superb. Millet offers much to consider in this unique novel, and Sands brings the story to life without excess drama or sentimentality. L.B.F.
