About the book

On an atoll not far from now, nor far from here, we meet a young man named Mala, who is eager to discover the secrets of his island home. Woleai is strangely unaffected by changes wreaking havoc across the rest of the planet – and Mala needs to know why.

The importance of his observations is brought to the forefront when scientists from afar arrive on the island.

A Sky of Wretched Shells is a provocative story in the face of climate change, a merging of ancient and modern learning and an answer to the question of our place in the stars.
