This YA book is a beautiful, small format hardcover. It's a retelling of the Odyssey story in a present/future day Los Angeles. The protagonist is a teenage girl who is dealing with an apocalyptic event and its aftermath. She is strong, determined, and passionate. She forges her own path, convinces others to listen to her, and shows great bravery in adversity.

It's written in a beautiful magical realism style that makes the story part Dream-world, part fantasy. The young characters are interesting and diverse.

Reserved for the female empowerment bookbox.

A very interesting book, and I love how pretty this little hardcover is. Releasing to the Feminism/Girl Power bookbox.

Took out of the Feminism/Girl Power bookbox. I've seen this book pop up in ads recently, and I'm a sucker for YA so I'm looking forward to reading this.
