Sacred Heart by Liz Suburbia
There’s an absence of authority in the town of Alexandria, and the teens are trying to keep their makeshift society together until their parents return. But students keep dying mysteriously, local band The Crotchmen rock the nights away, freshmen palm readers and seers have lines out the door, and Ben Schiller has had it up to HERE with her sister Empathy’s disappearing act. It’s a punk summer vacation that might not make it to fall.
“A book that’s relatable, terrifying and an incredible portrait of adolescence.”
“Accessible while addressing complex themes, like the demarcation between childhood and adulthood, faith and religion, love and sex.”
“For all her punky aesthetic Liz Suburbia is a creator of vision as well as style.” – Broken Frontier
