I call it Luggage Syndrome when the protagonist is merely carried along by everyone else. It's poor story-telling imo.

Ooh, that's exactly what this is like. Just the writing is so lush, I wanted so badly for it to get better, for the MC to take charge, and she just never did.
Most unfortunate when that happens; style is not a sufficient replacement for poor structure.
... or for character creation.
"Luggage Syndrome" -- oh, I like that.
Me, too - but I'm biased... ;-)
I remember having an issue with this book, mine was more that they treated the climate change as a joke.
