Seventeen-year-old Penelope 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 Penelope, a strong heroine who holds hope and love in her hands and refuses to be defeated.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Literary-minded readers will enjoy teasing out the allusions to Homer—and possibly even The Wizard of Oz—but knowledge of the classics is not a requirement to be swept up in the tatterdemalion beauty of the story’s lavish, looping language.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “The dreamlike quality of the writing, typical of the author’s works, functions well with the fantastical elements of the story, which is solid and dense in its descriptions. This is an excellent title for students who have read Homer’s Odyssey as well as readers who enjoy a mix of fantasy and reality.”

    School Library Journal

  • “The result is original and, no surprise, gracefully written. Magic is no stranger to Block’s world, nor is her signature poetic sensibility. And love, in its many varieties and forms, is celebrated, as always.”


  • “Block’s trademark magical realism works best in a brief, dreamy journey such as this one, even if the destination is uncertain…Mishmash or no, there’s something encouraging about seeing four queer kids on an epic journey across the post-apocalyptic American Southwest.”
