Join the club! Our first meeting of "It Came From the Library" will meet the last Monday of the month. We will discuss a thrilling novel over pizza & dessert or maybe snacks & candy. We can vote on that and more before our next meeting. Stop by the circulation desk and ask for a copy of The Taking of Jake Livingston. Read it if you can. If not, come to the meeting anyway! I know it's a busy time. We can still chat and eat stuff. Hope to see you then! The novel is also available as an ebook and eAudiobook. Click here for all options. Questions? Email Tanya@barringtonlibrary.org. WE WILL BE MEETING OUTSIDE! WE HAVE LIGHTS! In the case of inclement weather we will come inside.
"Jake Livingston is one of the only Black kids at St. Clair Prep, one of the others being his infinitely more popular older brother. It’s hard enough fitting in but to make matters worse and definitely more complicated, Jake can see the dead. In fact he sees the dead around him all the time. Most are harmless. Stuck in their death loops as they relive their deaths over and over again, they don’t interact often with people. But then Jake meets Sawyer. A troubled teen who shot and killed six kids at a local high school last year before taking his own life. Now a powerful, vengeful ghost, he has plans for his afterlife–plans that include Jake. Suddenly, everything Jake knows about ghosts and the rules to life itself go out the window as Sawyer begins haunting him and bodies turn up in his neighborhood. High school soon becomes a survival game–one Jake is not sure he’s going to win." (Goodreads)
