February 2 Book Club: Suicide Notes by Michael Thomas Ford

Book Club's next pick is Suicide Notes by Michael Thomas Ford; all are welcome to join the discussion after school in the library on Thursday, February 2. If you need a copy, speak with Ms. Charpentier or visit the Uxbridge Free Public Library.

From Goodreads: "Fifteen-year-old Jeff wakes up on New Year's Day to find himself in the hospital. Make that the psychiatric ward. With the nutjobs. Clearly, this is all a huge mistake. Forget about the bandages on his wrists and the notes on his chart. Forget about his problems with his best friend, Allie, and her boyfriend, Burke. Jeff's perfectly fine, perfectly normal, not like the other kids in the hospital with him. Now they've got problems. But a funny thing happens as his forty-five-day sentence drags on: the crazies start to seem less crazy. Compelling, witty, and refreshingly real, Suicide Notes is a darkly humorous novel from award-winning author Michael Thomas Ford that examines that fuzzy line between 'normal' and the rest of us."

The meetings for the rest of the year are:

Books
  • A selection of books with information on the serial killers Mrs. Lussier has suggested to you are on display in the library. Not every book has information on all the cases and individuals, so be sure to check the index or table of contents.
  • To look for books at the Uxbridge Free Public Library or the C/W MARS library system that can be placed on hold and sent to the Uxbridge library for you, locate your public library card and go to uxbridgelibrary.org. If you do not have a public library card, get an application from Ms. C or at the public library and visit with some form of identification.
