"Love in the Time of Global Warming" by Francesca Lia Block

Book coverThere's still time to pick up a copy of Love in the Time of Global Warming before our Teen Book Club on June 18. Copies are available in the teen space from the front display.

Love in the Time of Global Warming follows 17 year old Pen as she searches for her family in a post-apocalyptic Los Angeles. While keeping ahead of monsters, both literal and imagined, Pen finds a rag tag group of friends to travel with. The main characters happen to be queer, but Block's focus is on Pen's struggle rather than her sexuality. Inspired by Homer's Odyssey, Love in the Time of Global Warming is a great read for anyone who loves Science Fiction or reworked fairy tales.   

We will be discussing this title at 5:30 p.m. in the teen space on June 18.
