Genre Book Club- Going Bovine : Young Adult Fiction

Wednesday, February 20, 2013  
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

For February, we will be reading Going Bovine, a Young Adult book by Libba Bray. All 16-year-old Cameron wants is to get through high school—and life in general—with a minimum of effort. It’s not a lot to ask. But that’s before he’s given some bad news: he’s sick and he’s going to die. Which totally sucks. Hope arrives in the winged form of Dulcie, a loopy punk angel (or a possible hallucination) with a bad sugar habit. She tells Cam there is a cure—if he’s willing to go in search of it. With the help of a death-obsessed, video-gaming dwarf and a yard gnome, Cam sets off on the mother of all road trips through a twisted America into the heart of what matters most. (From the publisher.) Ask a librarian for a copy of the book.
