Adults who love reading novels written for teens are invited to a discussion in New Palestine. October's feature is We Are the Ants by Shaun David Hutchinson. We encourage you to read the book in advance. Ask for a copy at the circulation desk.

Book Description: Abducted by aliens periodically throughout his youth, Henry Denton is informed by his erstwhile captors that they will end the world in 144 days.

Henry can stop the annihilation by pushing a big red button. Only he isn't sure the world is worth saving. Life hasn't been great for Henry: his mom is held together by a thin layer of cigarette smoke; his brother is a jobless dropout. And Henry is still dealing with the grief of his boyfriend's suicide last year. Weighing the pain and the joy that surrounds him, Henry can choose to save the planet . . . or let it be destroyed.
