Up and Coming: The Alex Crow by Andrew Smith

Librarian M has the latest from TATAL favorite, Andrew Smith:

The Alex Crow by Andrew Smith

Release Date: March 10, 2015 

This book is about a teenage war refugee who has been taken in by a family in West Virginia.

This book is about an arctic expedition in the 1800s.

This book is about a crazy man driving somewhere with a bomb.

You might be wondering what all of these storylines have to do with each other. You might continue to wonder that through a good chunk of this book. But be patient—Andrew Smith has it all mapped out and in the end it all comes together nicely. This is a deep, layered book about resurrection (metaphorical and literal) and it deserves all of your attention. So, maybe not a beach read, but it’s still chilly out there so spend some time holed up with The Alex Crow.
