Barnes & Noble:

Set in 2089, Stine’s latest adventure describes a globally overcooked and devastated Earth divided into three sociopolitical regions: the Hotzone, where burn-scarred workers struggle to survive in 160 degree temperatures; Land Dominion, where realtor Melvyn Baron builds an empire by exploiting the Hotzone and its people; and Ocean Dominion, where newly orphaned teen hero Varik Teitur runs a vast sea farm. But when Marisa Baron — the idealistic, rebellious teenage daughter of Melvyn — and her activist friends break into Varik’s farm, his crops are poisoned and humanity’s food supply is imperiled. Characters Varik and Marisa embark on a quest to find FireSeed, exotic plant life that can rebuild their world.
