What will happen if the Global Warming signs are ignored? In the novel ISLANDS by Jacob Sackin, he explores a fictional account of this type of future.

Sackin’s story tracks the two families in a world that is too hot to live in during the daylight hours. One family lives primitively on the outside, only emerging from their cave at night, while the other lives in a technologically marvelous pyramid that protects it from the elements.

“Islands” blends the environmental impact of global warming with complicated feelings that teens have about their families, relationships and the world around them.

Saskia, the main character, especially struggles with the class structures in the pyramid and has the urge to move outside its confining walls and way of life. She also deals with complicated familial relationships and the impending death of her closest relative, which leads to a bigger adventure than she could imagine.
