about this item
KABOOM!, an expertly crafted coming to age and activism novel, is Brian Adams’ most recent foray into Young Adult Romantic Climate-Fiction. Cyndie and Ashley, two spunky and spirited teens from coal country West Virginia, become activists overnight when their beloved mountain is threatened by Big Coal. This novel tracks the girls’ experience as they start their own club, Kids Against Blowing Off Our Mountaintops, explore the power of grassroots activism, and even as they both begin to fall in love for the first time. The lively interplay of character dialogue and humorous narration not only makes serious environmental concerns more accessible but also inspires teens to evoke positive change in the world around them.
