Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The change of season is really climate change, the narrator is the current generation, and “you” is the children of today. The argument of the story is that we need to pick and choose what we can keep of the Earth’s wildlife because it is already determined that we’ll lose most of it.

Con: It’s pure message with zero plot and zero characters.
