The Wave That Set the Fire is set in a threadbare and not-so-distant future where 17-year-old Linden is accused of a terrible crime. When Petra, a government agent, arrives to investigate, Linden’s family—mother, father, uncle, aunt—struggle to reconcile their hopes for their boy with what constitutes justice in a damaged world.
