Pella Marsh, a fourteen-year-old girl, flees a post-apocalyptic Brooklyn with her family for a recently discovered planet and, troubled by her powerful attraction to a dangerous loner, causes tragic consequences for the inhabitants of the colony

Blackwell North Amer
The heroine is fourteen-year-old Pella Marsh, whose mother dies just as her family flees a postapocalyptic Brooklyn for the frontier of a recently discovered planet. Hating her ineffectual father, and troubled by a powerful attraction to the virile but dangerous loner who holds sway over the little colony, Pella sets out on a course of discovery that will have tragic and irrevocable consequences for the humans in the community, as well as the odd and exotic natives.
Girl in Landscape is a daring exploration of the violent nature of sexual awakening, a meditation on language and perception, and a homage to the great American tradition of the western.

I love Jonathan Lethem's writing style. His stories are quirky and interesting, always surprising me. This is probably my favorite. Highly recommend it!
