Join Bookseller, Austin Burkett, for a lively discussion of Felix Yz.
Middle Grade Book Club is appropriate for 4th-6th graders. We have snacks, raffles and sometimes crafts other activities related to the book! If you've been looking for a place to talk books with other kids who like to read...look no further! The only rule is to purchase the book from Inkwood to participate.
ABOUT THE BOOK: As long as Felix Yz can remember, Zyx, a fourth-dimension alien, has been living inside him. When Felix was three years old, an experiment his scientist father was working on went terribly awry, resulting in his father's death and the accidental fusing at the atomic level of Zyx with Felix. While Zyx is incredibly intelligent, the presence of this otherwordly being inside Felix makes the boy, now 13, walk and talk abnormally. People outside his family think he's strange and call him vicious names.
As if that weren't enough to tax Felix's existence, doctors believe Zyx's presence will eventually kill Felix, so a de-fusing procedure is planned. But the process for separating human and alien has never been done, and there are no guarantees. Either way, Felix stands a strong chance of dying soon, so he decides to keep a secret blog chronicling what may be his final 29 days as he counts down to "Zero Day."
