DECEMBER 2014 Featured Book –
by John Corey Whaley
Listen — Travis Coates was alive once and then he wasn’t.
Now he’s alive again. Simple as that.
The in between part is still a little fuzzy, but he can tell you that, at some
point or another, his head got chopped off and shoved into a freezer in
Denver, Colorado. Five years later, it was reattached to some other guy’s
body, and well, here he is. Despite all logic, he’s still 16 and everything and
everyone around him has changed. That includes his bedroom, his parents,
his best friend, and his girlfriend. Or maybe she’s not his girlfriend anymore?
That’s a bit fuzzy too. Looks like if the new Travis and the old Travis are ever
going to find a way to exist together, then there are going to be a few more
scars. Oh well, you only live twice…
We will also talk about YA literature (what YA books you are reading other than the group read), pop culture, movies,
music, video games, apps, teen reading/publishing trends and any other YA related topics you would like to bring up!
