Finley is an incredibly quiet boy and the only white player on his school’s basketball team. Russ, new to town and a former basketball phenom, has gone to live with his grandparents after his parents’ murder. Can these two build a friendship in a town like Bellmont where drugs, gangs, and violence are the norm?

Come join us at lunch on Wednesday, March 4th for our next Vikings Talk session when we discuss Matthew Quick’s Boy 21. Bring your lunch and meet us in the magazine section.

Join us this Wednesday at lunch when we discuss Blaine Harden’s Escape from Camp 14.

This is the “true” story of Shin Dong-hyuk who is noted to be the only individual to be born and survive an escape from one of North Korea’s infamous prison camps. This remarkable story may be just that as Shin has recently recanted his original story.

Want to hear and discuss more? Then join us on Wednesday! We meet by the magazines.
