Description
"Greendale" is based on Neil Young's critically acclaimed 2003 album and 2004 film of the same name. Many have referred to the album as a "rock novel" which explores the effects of crime, media, consumerism and environmental issues on the Green family in the sheltered small Northern California town of Greendale. Even for politically active teenage girls, Sun Green has always been different. There's been talk that the Green family women had great powers in concert with nature, but Sun herself never really wondered too much about it. Then, in the fall of 2003, as the nation gallops blindly into war, a Stranger appears in her hometown of Greendale, and everything starts going to hell. In an effort to overcome the pain the Stranger brings, Sun unearths the mystery of the Green family women, and in doing so, finds her own inherent power, not just to confront the Stranger, but to confront the mounting injustice of the world outside of Greendale as well.

display_description"It's early 2003, and America's march to war seems unstoppable. Yet you'd never know it in the quiet northern California town of Greendale, where eighteen-year-old Sun Green-- great-grandaughter of the man who helped carve this community out of the sweeping western coast-- lives, loves and dreams. Sun is different from most other kids. Always has been. The women in her family have all had a strange relationships with nature. But in almost every instance, this relationship has turned tragic. And on the day the bombs began to drop half a world away, a stranger arrives in town that only Sun can see. A stranger who's come to shake her very existence-- by destroying everything she loves [...] an inspiring American fable about a young woman's political coming of age-- all infused with a special brand of magic" -- p. [4] of cover.
