Early morning on Monday, October 9, 2017, wildfires burned through Northern California, resulting in 44 fatalities. In addition, 6,200 homes and 8,900 structures and were destroyed.

Author Brian Fies’s firsthand account of this tragic event is an honest, unflinching depiction of his personal experiences, including losing his house and every possession he and his wife had that didn’t fit into the back of their car. In the days that followed, as the fires continued to burn through the area, Brian hastily pulled together A Fire Story and posted it online—and it immediately went viral. He expanded his original web comic to include environmental insight and the fire stories of his neighbors and others in his community. This paperback version includes 32 NEW pages that bring the story up-to-date. A Fire Story is a candid testimony of the wildfires that left homes destroyed, families broken, and a community determined to rebuild.

Like most graphic novels this one is aimed at teens and young adults, eighth grade and older. But it is also very appropriate for the adult reader and adult reviews on Goodreads validate this. We hear about the effects of climate change but this is a first-hand story shared through graphic novel form I’m exactly how climate change drought plus a fire creates an unstoppable storm.
