Waiting on Wednesday: Love in the Time of Global Warming


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:









Love in the Time of Global Warming
by Francesca Lia Block
Published by Henry Holt and Co.
Publication Date: August 27, 2013










(from Goodreads)

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.


August seems so far away, but I think Love in the Time of Global Warming will be worth the wait. Francesca's books can seem really out there (at least the ones I've read) but I find that I enjoy them immensely. I'm looking forward to this one a lot.
