For our December YA Book Club we will be reading Spontaneous by Aaron Starmer.
Mara Carlyle's senior year is going as normally as could be expected, until - wa-bam! - fellow senior Katelyn Ogden explodes during third period pre-calc. Katelyn is the first, but she won't be the last senior to blow up without warning or explanation. With the whole country watching, the FBI soon rolls into Mara's suburban New Jersey hometown and the search is on for answers.
Whip-smart and blunt, Mara narrates the end of their world as she knows it while trying to make it to graduation in one piece. It's an explosive year punctuated by romance, quarantine, lifelong friendship, ice-cream trucks, “Snooze Button™”, Bon Jovi, and the filthiest language you’ve ever heard from the president of the United States.
