Christine Klocek-Lim - featured at Fox Chase Reading Series in Philadelphia
The Fox Chase Reading Series is sponsoring a Featured Poets/Writers Reading on April 29th. Christine will be reading at the Ryerss Museum and Library (7370 Central Ave., Philadelphia, PA) at 2 pm on the second floor gallery of the museum.
An open reading will follow the feature.
Christine will be bringing several paperback copies of Disintegrate as well as her poetry chapbooks. You can purchase them from her after the reading.
Emily just wanted a normal life: a boyfriend, college, two parents who loved her. Instead, her dad disappeared when she was fourteen and her life at college is anything but ordinary.
When you can manipulate matter like putty and you have no idea why, how do you pretend to be like everyone else? What happens when you meet a guy who has the same powers? Do you trust him to help you find the answers you need?
Emily desperately wants to believe that Jax can help, but the stakes grow higher than she’d ever expected: someone is after them and they’re not afraid to use violence to get what they want.
Reviews of Disintegrate:
"A wonderfully suspenseful YA novel that tackles not only such topics as special skills, bio engineering, and abuse of science, but also themes close to any reader, adult or young adult, like themes of family, friendship, love, belonging." — Brigita O.
