Children and Adolescents' Voices and Experiences in Climate Fiction

Abdelazim Sultan, Deema Ammari


This article aims to analytically and comparatively examine the representation of children's and adolescents' voices and experiences in a world entirely altered by climate change. The article focuses on two cli-fi novels: Lydia Millet's A Children's Bible (2020) and Tochi Onyebuchi's War Girls (2019). The article looks at how children's and adolescents' voices and experiences are depicted in a climate changed-world. Climate Fiction (cli-fi) writers can serve as a wake-up call for the world to recognize the needs of children during a climatic catastrophe by incorporating children's and adolescents' voices and experiences in their literary works so that readers of all ages will be able to see how children will harvest their fathers' sins, and what actions needed to preserve the Earth from a climatic crisis. Indeed, children and teenage protagonists in climate change literature have something to say about their current situation and the corruption of their social and political structures, which have caused climate change and destroyed their sole home; the Earth.
