Love in the Time of Global Warming (YA)
Book #96 Read in 2013
Love in the Time of Global Warming by Francesca Lia Block
This YA dystopian book reimagines Homer's Odyssey. After the world is hit by a huge earthquake, Penelope is on her own, knowing her father is dead but not knowing what has happened to her mother or younger brother. She begins to travel to find them. Along the way, she finds some other lost souls...young people on their own as well...and they become a sort of family/pack.
This book was a quick read. Pen is a great character...she is intelligent, brave and a bookworm. There is a decent amount of action and fighting to keep reluctant readers engaged. I liked it.
