Brown Bodies on a Blue Earth by Cris Eli Blak tells the story of a distant, or not so distant, future where the sun has gotten dangerously close to Earth, leading to all of the rich (and mostly white) people to load into spaceships and relocate to the moon, leaving the poor (and mostly minority) people on Earth to literally burn. As the heat increases and the chances of survival shrink, a group of individuals must face their regrets, loss, dreams, and personal traumas and pains in this story of climate change, society, economy, race, sexuality and class.
