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.

Love in the Time of Climate Change

Love in the Time of Climate Change

Brian Adams

Meet Casey, a community college professor with OCD (Obsessive Climate Disorder). While navigating the zaniness of teaching he leads a rag-tag bunch of climate activists, lusts after one of his students, and smokes a little too much pot.  Quirky, socially awkward and adolescent-acting, our climate change obsessed hero muddles his way through saving the world while desperately searching for true love. Teaching isn't easy with an incredibly hot woman in class, students either texting or comatose, condoms strewn everywhere, attack geese on field trips, and a dean who shows up at exactly the wrong moments. What's a guy to do?  Kidnap the neighbor's inflatable Halloween ghost? Confront evangelicals and lesbian activists? Channel Santa Claus's rage at the melting polar ice caps? Shoplift at Walmart? How about all of the above! Who would have thought climate change could be so funny!
