The Light Fantastic by Sarah Combs

Seven tightly interwoven narratives.
Three harrowing hours.
One fateful day that changes everything.

Delaware: The morning of April 19th. Senior Skip Day, and April Donavan's eighteenth birthday. Four days after the Boston Marathon bombing, the country is still reeling, and April's rare memory condition has her recounting all the tragedies that have cursed her birth month. And just what was that mysterious gathering under the bleachers about? The Light Fantastic is a tense, shocking, and beautifully wrought exploration of the pain and pathos of a generation of teenagers on the brink--and the home of moving from shame and isolation into the light of redemption.

Update: Congratulations to this drawing's winner, Olivia L.!
