The Big Read Nov 2-16: Reverie

Highland Public Library is connecting their patrons with millions of readers and a compelling young adult ebook during the next Big Library Read, the world’s largest digital book club. From November 2-16, readers’ secret dreams can become a reality when they borrow and read Ryan La Sala’s debut novel Reverie from their public library. Library name library card holders can borrow the ebook or audiobook without waiting by visiting our digital collection or downloading the Libby app. Readers can then discuss online at https://discuss.biglibraryread.com/.

Reverie is a wildly imaginative story about what happens when the secret worlds people hide within themselves come to light. In the story, all Kane Montgomery knows for certain is that the police found him half-dead in the river. He can’t remember anything since an accident robbed him of his memories a few weeks ago. So when three of his classmates claim to be his friends and the only people who can tell him what’s truly going on, he doesn’t know what to believe or who he can trust. But as he and the others are dragged into unimaginable worlds that materialize out of nowhere—the gym warps into a subterranean temple, a historical home nearby blooms into a Victorian romance rife with scandal and sorcery—Kane realizes that nothing in his life is an accident, and only he can stop their world from unraveling.

Big Library Read is an international reading program that connects millions of readers around the world with an ebook through public libraries.
