August BOOKMOBILE Book of the Month: CHARM & STRANGE by Stephanie Kuehn!

We always love it when a featured Bookmobile author gets to be one of our own and this month we're head over heels for this novel and its gripping plot, strong characters, and rip your heart out ending. Read with us:

CHARM & STRANGE by Stephanie Kuehn! 

To participate, buy a copy or borrow a copy of the book from the library/a friend/etc, then return on Monday, August 26th at 6pm PST/9pm EST for a live chat with Steph about CHARM & STRANGE here on YA Highway. Happy Reading!

When you’ve been kept caged in the dark, it’s impossible to see the forest for the trees. It’s
impossible to see anything, really. Not without bars . . .

Andrew Winston Winters is at war with himself.

He’s part Win, the lonely teenager exiled to a remote Vermont boarding school in the wake of a family tragedy. The guy who shuts all his classmates out, no matter the cost.

He’s part Drew, the angry young boy with violent impulses that control him. The boy who spent a fateful, long-ago summer with his brother and teenage cousins, only to endure a secret so monstrous it led three children to do the unthinkable.

Over the course of one night, while stuck at a party deep in the New England woods, Andrew battles both the pain of his past and the isolation of his present.

Before the sun rises, he’ll either surrender his sanity to the wild darkness inside his mind or make peace with the most elemental of truths—that choosing to live can mean so much more than not dying.
