I just received a recommendation from a friend today to read a book, but he doesn't remember the title. Here's what he does remember: Somehow, the earth's atmosphere gets screwed up and the entire earth gets really cold. This guy and and his father live in New York and they try to go to California, in search a hotter place. Also, apparently the author never used any punctuation to differentiate between dialog and thoughts. He also never mentioned the characters' names. I hope this is enough for you guys to figure it out.... Thanks!
