Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Simon Snow is back and he's coming to America! The story is supposed to be over. Simon Snow did everything he was supposed to do. He beat the villain. He won the war. He even fell in love. Now comes the good part, right? Now comes the happily ever after... So why can't Simon Snow get off the couch? What he needs, according to his best friend, is a change of scenery. He just needs to see himself in a new light... That's how Simon and Penny and Baz end up in a vintage convertible, tearing across the American West. They find trouble, of course. (Dragons, vampires, skunk-headed things with shotguns.) And they get lost. They get so lost, they start to wonder whether they ever knew where they were headed in the first place... With Wayward Son, Rainbow Rowell has written a book for everyone who ever wondered what happened to the Chosen One after he saved the day. And a book for everyone who was ever more curious about the second kiss than the first. It's another helping of sour cherry scones with an absolutely decadent amount of butter. Come on, Simon Snow. Your hero's journey might be over--but your life has just begun"-- Provided by publisher.

    *Starred Review* At last! A sequel to Carry On (2015) and the good news is that it's every bit as fine as the first. Here's the story: Simon, having lost his magic, is in such a funk that it seems things might be over with him and Baz. Happily, their friend Penelope—she who must be obeyed—decides they need to go to America to sort things out and to find out what is happening with their friend Agatha, who is incommunicado in San Diego. On the way they meet a 22-year-old named Shepard who is relentless in his determination to befriend them. With that settled, they head to Las Vegas, which turns out to be the vampire capital of America. Meanwhile Agatha is in grave danger, being held captive by a band of strange men called the Next Blood, who have an unhealthy interest in her magic. How this all works out is the making of a terrific adventure infused with magic, except when it isn't. The story is told from a number of points of view; one quibble here: the voices tend to sound too much alike. But that's small potatoes compared with the overall excellence of a book in which every vista pleases and every character delights. Carefully plotted, the book is a classic page-turner right to the open ending which, o frabjous day, promises a sequel to the sequel! One can hardly wait. Grades 9-12.
