Download Love in the Time of Global Warming by Francesca Lia Block for $2.99 for a Limited Time!

Love-in-the-Time-of-Global-WarmingAn Odyssey retelling? Lyrical writing? Gripping survival story? And all that for only $2.99?

That’s right! Love in the Time of Global Warming is available for only $2.99 for a limited time!

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 of Love in the Time of Global Warming is Pen, a strong heroine who holds hope and love in her hands and refuses to be defeated.

And don’t forget. If you already love Love in the Time of Global Warming, you can read The Island of Excess Love right now!
