In my Mailbox (6)

In My Mailbox is hosted by Story Siren which is about book (s) received/bought this week. 

About two weeks ago, I won an e-book  through Pawing Through Books "12 Days of Christmas" contest and received a copy sent by author P.J. Hoover  "Solstice" Yay! Thank you so much again.  I only got around to posting this since I got buried with work. oops. 

From Goodreads
Where Mythology and Dystopia meet... 

Piper’s world is dying. Global warming kills every living thing on Earth, and each day brings hotter temperatures and heat bubbles which threaten to destroy humanity. Amid this Global Heating Crisis, Piper lives with her mother who suffocates her more than the chaotic climate. When her mother is called away to meet the father Piper has been running from her entire life, Piper seizes an opportunity for freedom. 

But when Piper discovers a world of mythology she never knew existed, she realizes her world is not the only one in crisis. While Gods battle for control of the Underworld, Piper's life spirals into turmoil, and she struggles to find answers to secrets kept from her since birth. And though she’s drawn to her classmate Shayne, he may be more than he claims. Piper has to choose whom she can trust and how she can save the people she loves even if it means the end of everything she’s ever known. 

SOLSTICE is P.J. Hoover's debut YA novel and is the first front-list novel to be independently published by an Andrea Brown Literary Agency author.

    1. You're welcome. I'm at the edge of the my seat when the alarm sounded off on a report of heat bubbles near the school. It made me recall one of Discovery channel's features about mass extinction scenarios.

  3. I always like books about gods in a modern time period. That sounds like a really fun book. Thanks for stopping by WFTM!
