Sci-fi Springtime!: Dark Side of Nowhere by Neal Shusterman

Happy spring break, Smithies!  I know it's a busy week - we had Delirium author Lauren Oliver here at SPL on Monday (our report on that coming soon!), and we had a Mad Hatter's Tea Party for the littler kids on Thursday.  But in between library stuff and doing that pesky spring break project for school,  why not get started on our book for next month, Dark Side of Nowhere by Neal Shusterman!  Check out the synopsis:

The Dark Side of Nowhere by Neal Shusterman

"Jason is having a bad day. The kind of day when you just don't feel like yourself. Only for Jason, it's not just a feeling. He really isn't himself.

Not any more.

Who is he? That's the problem. Jason isn't sure. And it's not just him. Everyone in town is acting weird. His friends. His parents. Everyone. Billington is usually such a normal town. As Jason is about to discover, nothing will ever be normal again."

Alright, that wasn't a great synopsis - the book is way better, and it's totally as creepy as the title implies.  Srrsly, "Dark Side of Nowhere"?  How awesome a title is that?!  (Answer: AWESOME.)  Plus, there's lots of weird science fiction-y action, adventure, hijinks, whutevuh.

So get to reading - next month's meeting is Thursday, April 4th at 6pm at SPL.

And keep watching this blog sweet bloggy goodness.  Coming soon:
  • An announcement of another EXTRA AWESOME thing we're doing at the next meeting!!  If you didn't already hear about it at the last meeting, that is. 
  • Our post on last meeting's skype with author Hannah Barnaby (read the entire interview!)
  • A report on Delirium author Lauren Oliver's recent visit to SPL!
