"All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us." —J. R. R. Tolkien

Monday, March 28, 2011


Up for giveaway today is a book that seems to ask (and answer) the bigger questions in life. When I read it, it really made me take a step back and think about everything that was going on, and it stuck with me for days afterward.

THOSE THAT WAKE by Jesse Karp (Harcourt, March 21, 2011)

THOSE THAT WAKE was just released in hardcover.

From Amazon:

New York City’s spirit has been crushed. People walk the streets with their heads down, withdrawing from one another and into the cold comfort of technology. Teenagers Mal and Laura have grown up in this reality. They’ve never met. Seemingly, they never will.

But on the same day Mal learns his brother has disappeared, Laura discovers her parents have forgotten her. Both begin a search for their families that leads them to the same truth: someone or something has wiped the teens from the memories of every person they have ever known. Thrown together, Mal and Laura must find common ground as they attempt to reclaim their pasts.

Source of book: From publisher at NCTE
