Teen Action Committee: Monthly Book Recommendations

November 2019: The Road by Cormac McCarthy, Chosen by Carina

The Road, written by Cormac McCarthy is a perfect novel for teens and adults interested in science fiction.  The plot follows a father and son traveling through the desolate lands of the United States of America after it has been burned to the ground and covered in a thick layer of ash. Readers remain on the edge of their seat, trying to make sense of what caused the damage to the Earth. The father and son encounter several horrific events that should be soul shattering, yet they press on trying to find some sort of safe haven among the new hell on Earth. Will they make it out alive or will they die trying? Read the book and find out! (Recommended for teens ages 15+.) - Carina
