Collecting her speeches that have made history across the globe, from the United Nations to Capitol Hill and mass street protests, her book is a rallying cry for why we must all wake up and fight to protect the living planet, no matter how powerless we feel.

Professional reviews

"With a measured pace and devastating directness, 16-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg delivers a selection of her speeches, including her excoriating 2019 address to the United Nations. Thunberg's message is clear and pithy, and her Swedish-accented narration is passionate as she urges listeners to recognize climate change as an urgent global crisis. Even the repetition of facts and phrases across the speeches emphasizes Thunberg's point: How many times must she exhort world leaders for climate justice before her words sink in? The final five speeches in the collection are performed by narrator Saskia Maarleveld, whose quiet fervor enlivens Thunberg's words while maintaining the frankness that makes them so memorable. A bold and bracing call to action. R.A.H. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
