Love in the Time of Global Warming by Francesca Lia Block
Publisher: Henry Holt & Co.
Release Date: August 27, 2013
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.(from Goodreads)
I really love this cover, soooo much. It just caught my eye the first time I found it on goodreads and immediately added it to my list. It sounds like it will be a very adventurous story and a bit dystopian, maybe? Hopefully a good one. Really looking forward to it!
