JJ Johnson (The Theory of Everything) joins us on Sunday, June 26, at 4 pm. First, she graciously joins our Teen Advisory Board meeting at 3 pm. Those already part of the TAB are welcome. Then JJ shares Believarexic with us at 4 pm, in an event open to all. Believarexic is a "powerful story of healing and self-acceptance" (Kirkus Reviews), as a young woman undergoes treatment for an eating disorder with dark realism and dark humor. In 1988, when she was 15, JJ Johnson was hospitalized for treatment of bulimarexia but her path toward health was a constant struggle. In her heart, JJ knew that she would be a happy, healthy adult one day. But how? JJ closed her eyes and made a deal with herself that when she was a grown up she would come back to guide her bulimarexic self. This book is that promise, kept. Ages 12+. JJ was going to join us earlier this year, but was iced out by bad weather. We should be good in June!

Ever since Sarah Jones' best friend Jamie died in a freak accident, life has felt sort of random. In a last ditch effort to pull it together, Sarah ends up working for Roy, a local eccentric who owns a Christmas tree farm, and who might also be trying to understand the rules, patterns, and connections in life.
