Thea Prieto’s FROM THE CAVES is a staff pick at Bear Pond Books!

A fantastic novella of literary merit about a small family living in a cave after the climate apocalypse. Told in language that sings from the point of view of Sky, the youngest member who learns that responsibility is as necessary as the stories they tell each other to survive. The book is dark and bleak at times, but the fresh and lyrical language and the wildness of the hot and desolate future world really keep you turning pages. Picture Cormac McCarthy’s The Road, but told from the child’s point of view. A necessary tale to think about the effects of climate change and how language and stories may be the key to our survival.
