Join author Sara Farizan and our very own bookseller Caleb Seaver for a lively discussion of Farizan's Dead Flip for the October Boston.com book club! This event will take place on Zoom.
Meghan's review: "This was such a fun book! Perfect for young people and those who are young at heart who love horror, coming of age stories, mystery, and a bit of 90's nostalgia. The characters are sweet and funny, I was rooting for all of them throughout! It was a page turner and very enjoyable to read! I am looking forward to recommending this to readers this fall!"
ABOUT THE BOOK
Growing up, Cori, Maz, and Sam were inseparable best friends, sharing their love for Halloween, arcade games, and one another. Now it’s 1992, Sam has been missing for five years, and Cori and Maz aren’t speaking anymore. How could they be, when Cori is sure Sam is dead and Maz thinks he may have been kidnapped by a supernatural pinball machine?
These days, all Maz wants to do is party, buy CDs at Sam Goody, and run away from his past. Meanwhile, Cori is a homecoming queen, hiding her abiding love of horror movies and her queer self under the bubblegum veneer of a high school queen bee. But when Sam returns—still twelve years old while his best friends are now seventeen—Maz and Cori are thrown back together to solve the mystery of what really happened to Sam the night he went missing. Beneath the surface of that mystery lurk secrets the friends never told one another, then and now. And Sam’s is the darkest of all . . .
Award-winning author of If You Could Be Mine and Here to Stay Sara Farizan delivers edge-of-your-seat terror as well as her trademark referential humor, witty narration, and insightful characters.
