LOVE IN THE TIME OF GLOBAL WARMING by Francesca Lia Block (WOW #113)

Waiting On Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that everyone’s excited about!

Love in the Time of Global Warming

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 is Pen, a strong heroine who holds hope and love in her hands and refuses to be defeated.

LOVE IN THE TIME OF GLOBAL WARMING will be released August 27th, 2013 from Henry, Holt, and Co.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

    This is my pick this week too! I always get excited when a new Francesca Lia Block book comes out (even though there are still so many I haven't read yet). Her storytelling is very unusual which I like a lot.
