A darkly funny and spectacularly original exploration of friendship, goodbyes—and spontaneous combustion.
Mara Carlyle’s senior year is going as normally as could be expected, until—wa-bam!—fellow senior Katelyn Ogden explodes during third period pre-calc.
Katelyn is the first, but she won’t be the last teenager to blow up without warning or explanation. As the seniors continue to pop like balloons and the national eye turns to Mara’s suburban New Jersey hometown, the FBI rolls in and the search for a reason is on.
Whip-smart and blunt, Mara narrates the end of their world as she knows it while trying to make it to graduation in one piece. It’s an explosive year punctuated by romance, quarantine, lifelong friendship, hallucinogenic mushrooms, bloggers, ice cream trucks, “Snooze Button™,” Bon Jovi, and the filthiest language you’ve ever heard from the President of the United States.
It hard enough dealing with the stress of high school. Now you must deal with the stress of blowing up.
The main character, Katelyn is looking forward to her last year of school. Going to prom with the boy she loves. Having fun with her best friends. The only thing that stopping her having fun, when her classmates start blowing. Katelyn tries to hard to enjoy her last year or it may be her last..
Spontaneous was such a good book. Mostly gets you into the Halloween mood. Despite some kids blowing up and people afraid of the senior class, Katelyn makes the best of whatever time she has left with her boyfriend and best friend. Might have some trigger warning when kids start blowing up. No one in town can make sense of it. This book is all about having fun because it may be your last day on earth. I did like the cover to this read, it kinda cute and fun looking.
When I first heard about this book, I saw the movie trailer. It looks like a lot of fun the movie and it on demand for those who want to watch it.
