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.
