The Calm Act Series | Books

Books by Ginger Booth

Time Ran Out on Climate Change

The climate science was almost right. It was already too late. Weather disasters spin out of control. Food prices skyrocket. Refugees spill everywhere, including Americans fleeing the dust bowl, floods, and hurricanes.

Congress has a plan, the Calm Act. Its public face is martial law. The secret measures are worse.

In these apocalyptic adventures, set in the Northeast, ordinary people face a mounting climate crisis, and a government that seems to have betrayed them.

"Hard to put down. Can understand the magic number of tipping the environment and population over the limit. Scary, scary subject."

"Lots of surprising twists and likeable characters. Not your usual apocalyptic scenario. It makes you think about where you would fit in and how you would react if the s*** really did hit the fan."

"Different kind of EOTW book. Loved the strong female lead character. Lots of action and intrigue abound."

"Fabulous reading. Good people behaving decently as our world crumbles. Courage is contagious."

If you enjoy vivid characters, compelling world-building, and page-turning action, you'll love Ginger Booth's day-after-tomorrow Calm Act series.
