Teen Critics Meeting: Thirteen Days to Midnight (July 2011)
You are indestructible. Three whispered words transfer an astonishing power to Jacob Fielding that changes everything. At first, Jacob is hesitant to use the power, unsure of its implications. But there's something addictive about testing the limits of fear. Then Ophelia James, the beautiful and daring new girl in town, suggests that they use the power to do good, to save others. But with every heroic act, the power grows into the specter of a curse. How to decide who lives and who dies?
Join us on Thursday, July 21st at 6:30 in the teen area for pizza and a discussion of Thirteen Days to Midnight by Patrick Carman! Grades 7-12.
