El relato extraordinario de co mo una familia logra erguirse, con gran lucidez moral, ante la tremenda responsabilidad de estar vivos en el momento en que nuestras decisiones colectivas inmediatas esta n determinando el futuro de la vida en la Tierra. Han compartido su valiente historia no en busca de admiracio n, sino de compan i a. Greta Thunberg ya ha inspirado un hito global: este libro guarda la esencia de co mo ganaremos. -Naomi Klein #HuelgaPorElClima Quiero que actu en como si nuestra casa estuviera ardiendo. Porque asi es. Con estas palabras cerraba Greta Thunberg su discurso en el foro de Davos el 25 de enero de 2019, a los cinco meses de iniciar su huelga por el clima. Desde entonces, la activista ha abanderado la lucha sumando a millones de personas y obligando al mundo entero a encarar la crisis del planeta. Pero ?que llevo a una adolescente de quince an os a tomar la decisio n de plantarse en solitario ante el Parlamento de su pai s y desde alli intentar cambiar el mundo?

Esta es una historia, escrita por la familia Thunberg y narrada en la voz de la madre de Greta, que comienza cuando la hija mayor, de once an os, cae en una depresio n severa y deja de comer tras el impacto de un documental sobre el cambio clima tico. Sus padres emprenden una lucha feroz por su salud hasta que le diagnostican si ndrome de Asperger, autismo de alto funcionamiento y trastorno obsesivo-compulsivo. Al poco tiempo, la hija menor, Beata, muestra signos de trastornos similares. Este es el grito de auxilio de una nin a para convencer, primero a los suyos y luego al mundo entero, de que la sociedad esta tan enferma como el planeta y de que es urgente que reaccione. Una narracio n sobrecogedora de una familia moderna que supera su propia crisis desafiando una crisis global.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION An extraordinary account of how one family rose, with unshakable moral clarity, to the tremendous responsibility of being alive at the moment when our immediate collective decisions will determine the fate of life on Earth. They share their story of courage not because they want our accolades, but because they demand our company. Greta Thunberg has already inspired a global moment--this book is part of how we will win. --Naomi Klein, author of This Changes Everything When climate activist Greta Thunberg was eleven, her parents Malena and Svante, and her little sister Beata, were facing a crisis in their own home. Greta had stopped eating and speaking, and her mother and father reconfigured their lives to care for her. Greta's desperate parents came to realize that--alongside her diagnosis of Asperger's--there was another more pressing source of her distress: her imperiled future on a rapidly heating planet.

Steered by Greta's determination to understand the truth and generate change, they began to see the deep connections between their own suffering and the planet's. In Our House Is On Fire--co-written by a remarkable family and told through the lens of an iconoclastic mother--a family discovers that their struggles at home can be healed by taking global action. And Greta, understanding that there are no gray areas when it comes to the survival of the planet, decides to go on strike from school, igniting a worldwide rebellion..
