Our next book is THE DEVOURING GRAY by Christine Lynn Herman.

After the death of her sister, seventeen-year-old Violet Saunders finds herself dragged to Four Paths, New York. Violet may be a newcomer, but she soon learns her mother isn't: They belong to one of the revered founding families of the town, where stone bells hang above every doorway and danger lurks in the depths of the woods.

Justin Hawthorne's bloodline has protected Four Paths for generations from the Gray-a lifeless dimension that imprisons a brutal monster. After Justin fails to inherit his family's powers, his mother is determined to keep this humiliation a secret. But Justin can't let go of the future he was promised and the town he swore to protect.Ever since Harper Carlisle lost her hand to an accident that left her stranded in the Gray for days, she has vowed revenge on the person who abandoned her: Justin Hawthorne. There are ripples of dissent in Four Paths, and Harper seizes an opportunity to take down the Hawthornes and change her destiny-to what extent, even she doesn't yet know.

The Gray is growing stronger every day, and its victims are piling up. When Violet accidentally unleashes the monster, all three must band together with the other Founders to unearth the dark truths behind their families' abilities... before the Gray devours them all.

Published: Katherine Tegen Books - October 2nd, 2018

Sunday, February 17 - 3 pm

Our book for February was Sawkill Girls, an eerie mystery about the disappearances of several girls on the island of Sawkill Rock. Val, Marion, and Zoey are three girls who dig deeper, and fight harder, to end the disappearances and uncover their cause. Ultimately, this novel is about girls, perhaps best represented by this quote from the book, "Girls hunger. And we're taught, from the moment our brains can take it, that there isn't enough food for us all." The heroines of this book have to grapple with internalized suspicion of each other, to discover the real enemy is an oppressive regime designed to disregard and disenfranchise them. This novel smashes the patriarchy while giving you a fantastic and magical atmosphere to do it in.
