Next Big Teen Book Release

Wayward Son 

by Rainbow Rowell

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      

 

The story is supposed to be over.

Simon Snow did everything he was supposed to do. He beat the villain. He won the war. He even fell in love. Now comes the good part, right? Now comes the happily ever after… 

So why can’t Simon Snow get off the couch?

What he needs, according to his best friend, is a change of scenery. He just needs to see himself in a new light…

That’s how Simon and Penny and Baz end up in a vintage convertible, tearing across the American West.

They find trouble, of course. (Dragons, vampires, skunk-headed things with shotguns.) And they get lost. They get so lost, they start to wonder whether they ever knew where they were headed in the first place… 

With Wayward Son, Rainbow Rowell has written a book for everyone who ever wondered what happened to the Chosen One after he saved the day. And a book for everyone who was ever more curious about the second kiss than the first. It’s another helping of sour cherry scones with an absolutely decadent amount of butter.

Come on, Simon Snow. Your hero’s journey might be over – but your life has just begun. 

 

Release Date: September 24, 2019

Teens Talk About Books

Because we know you get tired of reading so much blah, blah about how good certain books are, we thought we'd let some teens TELL you how good they are.  Click on the books below to hear what your peers have to say. (The link will take you to the library's YouTube Channel.)
