Serpent King

by Jeff Zentner

Serpent King Synopsis

';The Serpent King is a book you won't be able to resist or forget. The Southern boy in me savored every syllable and the reader in me fell in love with every page.' John Corey Whaley, National Book Award finalist and Printz Award winner Dill has had to wrestle with vipers his whole lifeat home, as the only son of a Pentecostal minister who urges him to handle poisonous rattlesnakes, and at school, where he faces down bullies who target him for his father's extreme faith and very public fall from grace. He and his fellow outcast friends must try to make it through their senior year of high school without letting the small-town culture destroy their creative spirits and sense of self. Graduation will lead to new beginnings for Lydia, whose edgy fashion blog is her ticket out of their rural Tennessee town. And Travis is content where he is thanks to his obsession with an epic book series and the fangirl turning his reality into real-life fantasy. Their diverging paths could mean the end of their friendship. But not before Dill confronts his dark legacy to attempt to find a way into the light of a future worth living.Includes the song ';Birds Fly South,' performed by the author and Elin Palmer.Praise for The Serpent King:"e;Zentner combines the melancholy of being 17 with the melancholy present in the best of Southern fiction and gives us a novel that will fill the infinite space that was left in your chest after you finished The Perks of Being a Wallflower."e; -- BookRiot"e;The Serpent King gripped me in its coils and kept me turning pages late into the night. A triumph of love and dignity."e;--Stephanie Perkins, New York Times bestselling authorFrom the Compact Disc edition.
