The most interesting works of literature look at how people and groups deal with modern problems like global warming. Climate change is already having serious effects on communities all over the world. In her amazing new book, “The Silent Count,” EA Smiroldo talks about how climate change is affecting the world.
In the book, Dara Bouldin talks about a plan to make the effects of climate change less bad. The only problem is that no one at the government office where she works knows she’s there. Even though she has to pay off her student loans and her father’s gambling debts, she is still sad about breaking up with Jericho, whose new song is quickly climbing the charts. When Dara finds out what is going on, she is quickly pulled into a global war where her inventions turn out to be destructive in ways she could never have imagined.
The Silent Count is like the comedy “Don’t Look Up” in that it looks at how leaders would react to a terrifyingly likely event.
Smiroldo recently met with reporters to answer their questions.
People have said that the movie Don’t Look Up is like your book The Silent Count.
What do you think about comparing these two things?
Who would you pick to play the main character in a movie or TV show based on The Silent Count?
Millie Bobby Brown, who plays Eleven on the Netflix show Stranger Things, has a lot of potential in the lead role of Dara Bouldin in The Silent Count.
Even though she is young, shy, and has been through a lot of emotional pain because of loss and heartache, Dara finds her inner strength as the story goes on. I think that the movie version of my book will be both heartbreaking and thought-provoking because of how Millie Bobby Brown plays Eleven.
What is the most important lesson you want people to learn from The Silent Count and share with the rest of the world?
We came up with the atomic bomb, the flu vaccine, and the idea to land on the moon.
Why can’t we deal with climate change in the same beautiful and effective way?
