Love in the Time of Global Warming

Front Cover
Henry Holt and Company (BYR), Aug 27, 2013 - Young Adult Fiction - 240 pages

Seventeen-year-old Penelope (Pen) has lost everything—her home, her parents, and her ten-year-old brother. Like a female Odysseus in search of home, she navigates a dark world full of strange creatures, gathers companions and loses them, finds love and loses it, and faces her mortal enemy.
In her signature style, Francesca Lia Block has created a world that is beautiful in its destruction and as frightening as it is lovely. At the helm of Love in the Time of Global Warming is Pen, a strong heroine who holds hope and love in her hands and refuses to be defeated.

This one was intriguing enough to keep me reading. that's about it though. I didn't really invest in any of the characters. ultimately won't be continuing with this series. Read full review

Homer's Odyssey retold in a post-Apocalyptic Los Angeles setting. I've never been a huge fan of Block's magical realism and stream-of-consciousness narratives but she does have an enviable talent for creating some of the most extraordinarily beautiful imagery. Read full review
