October’s MP! Book Club: Sick by Tom Leveen

Sickness rips through Brian’s school, blood devouring zombies that won’t let anyone or thing stand in their way. What would you do if you were stuck in school and everyone around you was slowly being taken away into sickness? Prepare to not be able to put this book down. 


Brian and his friends are not part of the cool crowd. They’re the misfits, the troublemakers — the ones who jump their High School’s electrified fence to skip school regularly. So when the virus breaks out, they’re the only ones with a chance of surviving. The virus turns Brian’s classmates and teachers into bloodthirsty attackers who don’t die easily. In other words: Zombies.

The whole school goes on lockdown and the military surrounds the fence and Brian and his best friend Chad are safe (and stuck) in the theater department — far from Brian’s sister, Kenzie and his ex-girlfriend with a panic attack problem, Laura. Brian and Chad, along with some of the theater kids who he’d never given the time of day before, decide to find the girls and bring them to the safety of the theater. But it won’t be easy, and it will test everything they thought they knew about themselves and their classmates. In a world turned upside down, who exactly are the real monsters?

The fourth book in the Internet girls series, ‘Yolo’ by Lauren Myracle  is a modern tale of three BFF’s trying to cope with long distance relationships and the struggles of moving away from home. Could you cope with making new friends all over again and getting dumped by text? 


It’s freshman year of college for the winsome threesome and *everything* is different. For one, the best friends are facing their first semester apart. Way, way apart. Across the country. And it’s not just the girls who are separated. Zoe’s worried that Doug wants to break up now that they’re at different schools and Maddie’s boyfriend Ian is back in Georgia. And Angela joins a sorority, which is SO not a Maddie thing to do. In the face of chance and diverging paths, Maddie’s got a plan to keep the friends close and it involved embracing the present, making memories and skydiving!

Using of-the-moment technology, Lauren brings her ground-breaking series into the brave new virtual world of texting and tweets.
