So, for me, that's Audrey in Finding Audrey, who has suffered an as-yet-unidentified personal trauma that has her wearing dark glasses to avoid eye contact and hiding from the rest of the world; A.J. Fikry, described by most who know him as the most self-centered and selfish person they've ever met; and three teen alpha girls — Emerson, Tenley, and Sydney* — who are being tormented by an unseen, unknown enemy and as a result are emotional basket-cases.
(I haven't finished these books yet, I suspect some personal growth
lies ahead for at least a handful of these characters, but at this writing they
are troubled and hurting.)
In short: We're zombie food.
I'm also reading the new Stephen King book, but it's early days yet, I'm not sure who the protagonist even is.
It will be in the 90s and humid all week — perfect time to hunker down with library books, a cold drink, and a fan!
Ugh. I dislike summer. But July's almost over, this too shall pass.
— Lady C, which rhymes with "G," which stands for Good Attitude, ha
* The book is equally about all three of them, there's no single protagonist, though I think we're supposed to like outsider Sydney the best.
I am thoroughly enjoying all four books so far, btw. Check 'em out!
