You want to get wrapped up in a book? Here. The earth is drowned beneath 7 miles of water with the exception of a floating children's hospital. Led by the med student Jemma Claflin, unwitting possessor of new magical powers, the survivors try to restructure society. Fantastical. 600+ pages were not enough!.

Total magic! This is the tale of an eternal February-and one town's war against it. Wowza, surreal prose that does not sell you short in storytelling. Lexical AC for the hot sticky summer days. Or whichever weather condition you want to read it in. Because you should read it.

While at once the manipulated and the manipulator, he searches for both normality and glory, his dad, and a way to go the bathroom without a bodyguard.
