We just enjoyed these exact flavors at our last teen summer reading club meeting! The bacon mac and cheese was surprisingly edible, although opinions differed about whether it tasted more like bacon or more like mac and cheese. The cappuccino flavor, though … the less said about that, the better.
Our high school advisory board taste-tested some of these funky potato chip flavors at our meeting this evening! Check back to learn the results!
Colby has his summer all planned out. High school is over, and he’ll spend the next week on tour with his friend’s band, The Disenchantments. After the tour, he and his best friend Bev, aka the lead singer of The Disenchantments, aka the girl he’s been in love with forever, will head off on a yearlong European adventure. Colby can’t wait to spend a year exploring Europe with his favorite person, but on the first day of the tour Bev drops a bomb: she’s not going to Europe. She’s going to college instead, abandoning the trip they’ve been planning since eighth grade. With one sentence from Bev, Colby’s dreams and heart are shattered. But they’re stuck with each other on tour for the next week, and before the week is out Colby will need to decide what’s next for his life.
Alex’s mom has been acting weird lately. She’s speaking differently, wearing different clothes, and Alex has found her sitting up in the middle of the night poring over maps of the Atlantic. The rest of Alex’s family tries to ignore her mom’s weird behavior, but that becomes impossible when Alex’s mom declares that she is Amelia Earhart. That’s right, Amelia Earhart, the famous female aviator from the 1930’s. Deeply delusional, Alex’s mom doesn’t recognize her family, and can’t be swayed from her belief that she is Amelia Earhart. Alex is already dealing with a lot - trying to pass her driving test and figuring out what’s going on with a guy at school. But now she also has to learn how to cope with her mom’s mental illness, hopefully without everyone at school finding out and labeling her forever as the girl with the crazy mom. And Alex is slowly realizing that her mom believes that she is Amelia Earhart preparing for her final flight, the flight from which she famously never returned…
