Hello, lovely locked-down friends!
A quick word about bookclub in a time of coronavirus: I know we’re all coping with some wild circumstances right now – no matter your situation, living in quarantine isn’t easy. But while you’re stuck at home, Emmaly and I will do our best to keep you busy with book recs, new titles, online events or some other way of connecting with your favourite books. After a few hiccups, we’ve made sure that Boomerang Books is still offering us free shipping on bookclub orders. And if you think of anything that we could include in bookclub that would make your life easier, please reach out on the FB page and let us know!
Okay – onward!
With their camp wiped away, Alif and the others find themselves lost on the sands, seemingly doomed . . . until they find the oasis. It has everything they need: food, water, shade—and mysterious ruins that hide a deadly secret. As reality begins to shift around them, they question what’s real and what’s a mirage.
The answers turn Alif and her friends against one another, and they begin to wonder if they’ve truly been saved. And while it was easy to walk into the oasis, it may be impossible to leave . . .
The oasis saved them. But who will save them from the oasis?
This one looks exciting enough to keep us distracted for at least the next month! If you’d like to grab your copy of OASIS, you can get free shipping by using the ‘loveoz’ code when ordering through Boomerang Books. If you prefer to read digitally, you can find the ebook here.
Keep up with the conversation about this book at the #LoveOzYAbookclub FB group page – we’ll have an interview with Katya DeBecerra, author of OASIS, coming up soon 🙂
Until then, stay safe and well, look after yourself and your loved ones, and stay home!
