Release by Patrick Ness
(Release Date: September 19, 2017)
About the Book:
Inspired by Mrs Dalloway and Judy Blume’s Forever, Release is one day in the life of Adam Thorn, 17. It’s a big day. Things go wrong. It’s intense, and all the while, weirdness approaches…
Adam Thorn is having what will turn out to be the most unsettling, difficult day of his life, with relationships fracturing, a harrowing incident at work, and a showdown between this gay teen and his preacher father that changes everything. It’s a day of confrontation, running, sex, love, heartbreak, and maybe, just maybe, hope. He won’t come out of it unchanged. And all the while, lurking at the edges of the story, something extraordinary and unsettling is on a collision course.
Why I’m dying to read this:
I’m kind of a Patrick Ness super fan. I’ve read most of his recent works, and I’ve loved them all. I’m already stuck trying to decide if I’m going to order this internationally so I can have it in May, or holding out for the US cover in September. All I know is this is more Patrick Ness and I want it!
