Love in the Time of Global Warming by Francesca Lia Block
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I love everything by Francesca Lia Block and was happy to enter her LA fantasy world again. I like dystopia, too, so imagine my surprise when I realized this is Block's dystopian effort beautifully embellished with her fantastical characters, images and visions. Pen is a teenaged girl whose idyllic existence in Venice, CA is abruptly ended by the big one--a catastrophic earthquake called The Earth Shaker. For her safety she has to leave her home and find a new existence. On the journey she finds companions, sees some really freaky stuff, falls in love and and and....you'll have to read it to find out!
