From the Back Cover
"All of them stuck to the climate change theme very well. Two of the stories use the theme in a subtle way, and because these two stories--"She Says Goodbye Tomorrow" by Eric Sipple and "Mom. Mom. Mom. Mom. Mom." by Rachel Lynn Brody--are also written extremely well, they are my favorite, earning 5-stars each.
Of those two, though, I have to say that the star of the show is Eric Sipple's story. It's also the longest of the group, which isn't a bad thing whatsoever; it's actually a good thing. His story grabs you from the first sentence and through a series of shifting scenes doesn't let you go until the end. It's detailed but not too much so. The structure (though confusing at first) actually works quite well; however, I didn't see this fact until long after I finished it, which is another good thing, for he had me thinking about his story long after the last word.
I definitely recommend this anthology if you are concerned about the changing climate of our planet, and even if you aren't, I still recommend it."
