This story is about the future. The earth is dying because ozone is breaking. But people can live in the earth because of the artificial ozone layer(AOL). The AOL is good for a thousand years. But Kiah realizes the AOL is breaking. Kiah tries to talk with several people about it. But.....

I think it is easy for me to understand this story and this story is interesting. I can imagin the future of the earth. But I don't understand the ending. If you like SF, you will enjoy reading this story! ( )

This story is the story of the earth after 500 years.
Destruction of the ozone layer was being man-made.
People to save the planet, trying to repair the ozone layer.

This is science fiction story.
I think this story is closed a little too unrealistic.
So it is difficult for me to empathy.
But this story is very interesting. ( )

This book is about the future of earth in 2522, and this year, the earth died, because of Artical Ozon Layer(ALO). However, there are two people who has brave mind. Their name is Koah and Rilla. They try to protect the earth from dying.

I was moved by this book. May be this story is not real, but now, the earth becomes very warm because the ozon was broken by people. However people did not mind this problem.I think people all of the world have to think about this serious problem. We may be have the solution of this problem. ( )
