The Book Was Better: "The Knife of Never Letting Go" by Patrick Ness

Join us for a discussion of The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness before the movie (Chaos Walking) is released!

All attendees will be entered to win two movie passes to see the film when it hits theaters in March.

About the Book:

Prentisstown isn't like other towns. Everyone can hear everyone else's thoughts in an overwhelming, never-ending stream of Noise. Just a month away from the birthday that will make him a man, Todd and his dog, Manchee - whose thoughts Todd can hear, too, whether he wants to or not - stumble upon an area of complete silence. They find that in a town where privacy is impossible, something terrible has been hidden - a secret so awful that Todd and Manchee must run for their lives.

But how do you escape when your pursuers can hear your every thought?

Limited copies of the book will be available for checkout at the library and for purchase at RJ Julia Booksellers.
