Overview

From the bestselling author of "Weetzie Bat" comes a stunning reimagining of Homer's "Odyssey" set in post-apocalyptic Los Angeles

After the Earth Shaker, which all but destroyed Los Angeles, seventeen-year-old Penelope (Pen) sets out into the wasteland in search of her family, her journey guided by a tattered copy of Homer's "Odyssey." Soon she begins to realize her own abilities and strength as she faces false promises of safety, the cloned giants who feast on humans, and a madman who wishes her dead. On her voyage, Pen learns to tell stories that reflect her strange visions, while she and her fellow surivors navigate the dangers that lie in wait.

In her signature lyrical style, Francesca Lia Block has created a world that is beautiful in its destruction and as frightening as it is lovely. "Love in the Time of Global Warming has" shades of science fiction, fantasy, and dystopic disaster.
