Publisher: Henry Holt and Co.
Release Date: 27th August 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.

When I first saw this book, I was curious because of the title and the cover. Both sparked my interest at once. After I read the description, I was like 'oh yeah!'. Because actually to be honest, I'm a little sick of the romance that's been circulating in the YA industry lately and this, would certainly be a great source of fresh air. And seriously SOMEONE has to really care about the environment. You can certainly admire the cover forever! It's so beautiful!


  1. Ahhh this book sounds so awesome! Love love love adaptations :D
