Teen Critics Meeting: The Knife of Never Letting Go (April 2012)
Prentisstown isn't like other towns. Everyone can hear everyone else's thoughts in an overwhelming, never-ending stream of Noise. Just a month away from the birthday that will make him a man, Todd and his dog, Manchee -- whose thoughts Todd can hear too, whether he wants to or not -- stumble upon an area of complete silence. They find that in a town where privacy is impossible, something terrible has been hidden -- a secret so awful that Todd and Manchee must run for their lives.
But how do you escape when your pursuers can hear your every thought?
Join us on Monday, April 30th at 6pm in the Teen Area for pizza and a discussion of The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness! We'll also choose our book for May. Grades 7-9.
