Davi tries to help a new friend, Anna Z, escape a cruel and controlling brother, and the teens end up running away to follow the tour of their rock idol, the otherworldly Django Conn. The story is set in a weird and wonderful retro-futuristic city of glam-girls and glister-boys and a strange phenomenon that Anna Z calls the “Alien Drift.”
I received a copy of Meet Me In The Strange from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
First off, I love the cover for this. Usually I don’t read juvenile fiction, but I just thought that the description for this book was too interesting to pass up It begins with a concert, and a flickering out of place girl.
Davi is a young boy who lives in a dorm and spends a lot of his time listening to his favourite band. He meets a girl he really likes, and she’s super weird compared to everyone else, including their first encounter where she seemed like she was flickering while she was listening to the band play at a show, but that couldn’t be right could it? She’s into all these conspiracies and aliens and he just loves listening to her talk. She believes the singer of their favourite band is actually an alien and Davi soon starts to believe that too. When he learns about her hidden past, it changes everything. This story is crazy and a smooth ride from start to finish.
Although the chapters are only a few pages long each, this book was an enjoyable read and I’m glad I got the chance to read it.
Here’s a link to the book on Amazon.
