April Book of the Month


Son of a Trickster by Eden Robinson
Everyone knows a guy like Jared: the sixteen-year-old burnout in high school who sells weed cookies and has a scary mom who’s often wasted and wielding some kind of weapon. Jared smokes and drinks too much, and his mom is a mess, and he can’t rely on anyone for consistent love and support, except for his flatulent pit bull, Baby Killer, but now she’s dead.
He’s also a kid with an immense capacity for compassion and an impulse to watch over people more than twice his age, and he tries his best to stabilize his family and keep everything afloat.
But it’s weird the way he sometimes blacks out. And he puzzles over why his maternal grandmother has never liked him, why she says he’s the son of a trickster, that he isn’t human. Also, ravens have begun to speak to him – even when he’s not stoned.
You think you know Jared, but you don’t.
