The Round Rock Library Public Library will host a Teen Book Club meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 17, in the Teen Room.
We will be joined this meeting by author Emily McKay as we discuss her book The Farm.
Seventeen-year-old Lily remembers the Before, a time before the Ticks—genetically mutated, vampirelike beings—took over and teenagers were corralled like livestock onto government-run farms for their blood. But, as in Logan’s Run, there’s an expiration date on the teens’ usefulness, and 18 is only a few days away. Lily is planning a desperate escape with her autistic twin sister, Mel. When Carter, a boy from her past, suddenly shows up, she discovers that escaping is the easy part.
