Publisher's Summary

When fire rips through the Woodland Country, everything changes for Ellin. No longer do the People want to live in the Red. Fear makes them want to harness and control it. They now live in the Blue where fossil-burning and Making help destroy every form of discomfort; their charismatic leader, Low, has convinced them to live that way. But Ellin predicts their decline, caused by the new way they live. The air has turned thick and oily and everything they touch is greasy Blue. Worst of all, the animals of the Woodland and Plains Countries are dying.

Ellin remembers the Red—the time before the fire—when trees stretched across the land. The air and water were clear and the People respected all other living creatures. Ellin weaves these reflections into a letter to her newborn daughter, Little El, in the hope she will grow up to change the way the People live. Could Little El be the one to lead a transformation?

Red Reflection is a contemporary parable about how quickly we changed the world. In fact, it's more than that: It's about habitat destruction, the link between mortality and our connection to nature, and how it feels to sit on the outside of popular belief.
