(downstairs meeting room)
Loosely inspired by the Manson Family and the murder of actress Sharon Tate, the majority of the novel is set in 1969 and focuses on 14 year old Evie Boyd who feels isolated and unloved and ends up spending the majority of that summer with a group of teenage girls on a ranch who are all devoted to a man named Russell. As she spends more time away from her mother and as her obsession with one of the “girls” Suzanne intensifies, Evie does not realize she is coming closer and closer to unthinkable violence, and to that moment in a girl’s life when everything can go horribly wrong. Led by Librarian Eric Wasserman. Registration begins Wednesday, January 23rd.
