I really wanted to like this book, but after a few pages it gets very boring, there is not a likeable character in it and some very vulgar language really put me off. I suffered through it though. It's a shame as global warming is a very important issue in these days, but his book failed to educate or entertain me. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"Tammy's kitchen table is tilting. Her house is sinking into the ground, and the sun just won't stop shining. But no one seems to notice. Not her father, working two-week shifts for an oil company; not her mother, working nights as a cleaner in a hospital; none of the people around her, who go about their business as if nothing has changed. But in Alaska, things are changing fast: the permafrost is melting, temperatures are soaring, and the snow doesn't come until Christmas. When Tammy's cousin George disappears, it is Tammy who discovers him, hiding away from a world in which he sees the steady erosion of the traditions that have made him who he is. As their strange, erotic connection intensifies, it becomes clear to Tammy that George is involved in something terrible and dangerous."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
