Love in the Time of Global Warming

Love in the Time of Global Warming - Francesca Lia Block My first thought when I finished this was "so it's like Attack on Titan, except that it's set in Los Angeles." That's not a bad thing, nor is it entirely accurate, but. I liked this well enough although the prose wasn't quite as beautiful as I usually expect from Francesca Lia Block - but I guess that fits into the theme of destruction and loss. I liked the mythology parallels but it was a little heavy-handed sometimes. A+ representation of queer characters: Love in the Time of Global Warming isn't a "queer book," but all four of the main characters are queer kids and while real world issues aren't ignored unrealistically they're far from the driving force of the plot and this isn't an "issues" book.
