Love in the Time of Global Warming

Love in the Time of Global Warming - Francesca Lia Block I found this to be a curious book, a tale of a young girl's search through a changed world. Pen encounters many a strange being on her journey, and gains a few friends along the way. What's key for Pen is finding her family after the earthquake, finding where they disappeared to.Pen's world sounds like it's set so far into the future, set in a land of large, lumbering monsters and young people fighting to survive, but it's not. Because of that, I had trouble taking Pen's journey seriously. Still, I found the book beautifully written, Block's writing style is very lyrical and magical.
