“Sim Kern’s Real Sugar is Hard to Find is the climate fiction the world urgently needs right now, stories I couldn’t put down that chart an escape route from our current fossil fuel nightmare to a livable, decarbonized future...the prose is beautiful and the characters are unforgettable. And beneath it all lies a deeply hopeful vision of family—blood, chosen, and the human family as a whole.”

—Aya de León, author of A Spy in the Struggle and Queen of Urban Prophesy


"Sim Kern’s kaleidoscope of possible climate futures – ranging from terrifying to fantastical to aspirational – pulses with an unflinching heartbeat of hope. Even in darkness, Kern finds wonder in a single, cherished plant, a glimmer of green, a human heart unwilling to give up. Beautifully written and brimming with unforgettable characters and landscapes, Real Sugar is Hard to Find should be required reading for anyone who cares about justice for and on this fragile planet we share." 


—Julie Carrick Dalton, author of Waiting for the Night Song and The Last Beekeeper
