A group of twelve-year-old friends concerned about climate change propose a new way to save the earth: amending the U.S. Constitution. Their project propels these activists on an amazing journey across Americaand all the way to Norwaywith plenty of outside-the-box high jinks and civil disobedience, as they work to save the planet and their futures on it.

For sixth grader Sam Warren and his friends Catalina, Alistair, Jaesang, and Zoe, the effects of climate change are too pressing to ignore. Adults dont seem to be up to the challenge of taking action to make real change, but kids know its their futures on the line. If their parents, teachers, and government officials wont step up, well, then they will!

And these young people will stop at nothingincluding outside-the-box high jinks and civil disobedienceto save the planet and their futures on it. With a little help from a retired kids rights lawyer and a grandma who knows how to march, they are ready to think big: constitutional amendment big. But can a bunch of twelve-year-olds really draft an amendment that protects the planet, get it passed by Congress, and change enough hearts and minds across the country to get it ratified before the clock runs out?

Steven B. Frank crafts another funny and fast-paced story of heightened-reality wish fulfillment, loaded with the witty patter of smart kids, in this book that reads like Aaron Sorkin for middle grade and plumbs the complexities of the Constitution and the critical turning point of global climate change.
