Waiting on Wednesday: Love in the Time of Global Warming by Francesca Lia Block

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine to spotlight an upcoming release that we're excited about. This week I'm waiting on Love in the Time of Global Warming by Francesca Lia Block.

 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 comes out August 27, 2013.


  1. I'm excited for this one, too. I remember reading all the Weetzie Bat books in high school. This one sounds interesting and I love that cover. Great pick!

  2. As a Weetzie Bat fan, I am always excited to see Francesca Lia Block in the spotlight as I know the book will be written with great style. LOOOVE the title by the way, and the subtle echo of LOVE IN THE TIME OF CHOLERA! My Wow:
