Our House is on Fire: Scenes of a Family and a Planet in Crisis

Author(s): Malena Ernman; Greta Thunberg; Beata Thunberg; Svante Thunberg


Greta is eleven years old, and she has stopped eating. She has stopped talking. And she has become fixated on the horrors of the climate crisis, which creep into news bulletins each night. Her parents grapple desperately, hopelessly, to make her better; her sister takes a turn for the worse; day by day, their family life begins to unravel. Four years later, Greta sits outside Swedish Parliament. Her parents watch on as she eats vegan pad thai and chats with a journalist. She is ready for what's coming next, and so are they. They have allowed her to skip school. They have changed their habits. They have quit their jobs, and they have joined their daughter in her fight for the living planet - a fight which will change the world, and save their family. Scenes from the Heart is the remarkable true story of two parents and two daughters, who together have transformed the way we think and talk about our earth. Revealing the intimate, hitherto unseen impact of climate change on our children's and our own mental health, it is a passionate rallying cry for us all to wake up and see things differently - and then join them in the struggle for ourselves and our living planet.
