For our summer book club pick, we chose the BEST book! Please join us on Twitter on July 14th from 8-9 pm CST, Hashtag #SITSbooks.
Our July book club pick is AMAZING! You know how great it is when you get a book you can’t stop reading and you stay up until 1:30 am (on a weeknight) to finish it? That, my friends, is Exposure by Therese Fowler. This, simply put, is one hell of a great book. My review is here:
The premise of the book is perfect for 2011. Two teenagers in a consentual relationship choose to text each other inappropriate pictures. The girl’s conservative, successful father unfortunately finds out and legal action ensues. This book is very timely in our age of digital cameras, flip videos, Skype, etc. I dare say that everyone who has a child who even knows how to use a cell phone should read this novel ASAP! The conundrum of our time- if teenagers are legally allowed to have sex, can they also be sex offenders because they email and text each other?
Not to brag or anything but I was already ga-ga over this book and then… The New York Times decided to join me in naming EXPOSURE as one of its “Books to Bury Yourself in!”
Exposure is really a 21st century Romeo and Juliet. This book will be the delight of our SITS book club as it has a gripping plot and can so easily lead to moral and ethical questions. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that I see this book becoming a movie shortly.
I loved this book so much that she immediately invited Therese Fowler and Exposure to be the July pick for the SITS book club. Please join us on Twitter on July 14th from 8-9 pm CST, Hashtag #SITSbooks. This will be a great discussion!
Random House, Ms. Fowler’s publisher, is graciously giving out 25 copies of Exposure. To win extra chances for a free copy, please
