The next meeting of the Not-So-Young Adult Book Group will be on Tuesday February 17 at 7pm in the Robbins Library Conference Room.
We’ll be discussing 172 Hours on the Moon by Johan Harstad. Here’s the description from the library catalog:
“It’s been decades since anyone set foot on the moon. Now three ordinary teenagers, the winners of NASA’s unprecedented, worldwide lottery, are about to become the first young people in space–and change their lives forever. Mia, from Norway, hopes this will be her punk band’s ticket to fame and fortune. Midori believes it’s her way out of her restrained life in Japan. Antoine, from France, just wants to get as far away from his ex-girlfriend as possible.
It’s the opportunity of a lifetime, but little do the teenagers know that something sinister is waiting for them on the desolate surface of the moon. And in the black vacuum of space…no one is coming to save them.
In this chilling adventure set in the most brutal landscape known to man, highly acclaimed Norwegian novelist Johan Harstad creates a vivid and frightening world of possibilities we can only hope never come true.”
Sounds great, doesn’t it? There are plenty of copies being held at the Robbins circulation desk so swing by and pick one up!
The Not-So-Young Adult Book Group is a book group for adults in which we read and discuss books written for teens. (No shame!) Come enjoy our casual friendly discussion. Hope to see lots of you in February!
