A captivating performance by Rosemary Benson highlights this arresting dystopian story of a woman's struggle to survive in a dying world. Rising water levels; monster storms; and blistering, deadly heat have left Florida and its population devastated. Born during a massive storm, Wanda grew up watching her surroundings deteriorate and learning how to survive. In this post apocalyptic Florida, Wanda's life depends upon her ability to adapt. Benson delivers tension as thick as the swampy air, and adds color and brightness to the more hopeful moments. Wanda's encounters with other survivors are sometimes dangerously brutal, sometimes tenuously friendly. Author Brooks-Dalton achieves a disturbing look at the effects of climate change, and Benson's exceptionally perceptive narration makes Wanda's plight personal. S.J.H.
