Christian College Geelong Senior Library: Lovers of literature

If you liked Carousel… You’ll love beyond Carousel by Brendan Ritchie

 

Beyond Carousel : Carousel - Brendan Ritchie

All of us wanted to survive whatever was happening. Maybe even escape it somehow. But more than that – we wanted to know what it was.

 

Nox, Taylor and Lizzy have just escaped a nightmare. After months of being trapped inside a shopping centre they are finally free. Free to roam the streets of Perth and free to solve the mystery of what happened outside the doors of Carousel.

 

But the city is not like it once was, and the dangers are far from over. Loots lurk in the empty streets and packs of dogs are never far behind. Saving those they love will mean risking everything – and time is running out.

 

This is the thrilling sequel to Carousel.

About Highly Illogical Behavior

Teen and adult fans of All The Bright Places, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, and Everything, Everything will adore this quirky story of coming-of-age, coming out, friendship, love…and agoraphobia.

Sixteen-year-old Solomon is agoraphobic. He hasn’t left the house in three years, which is fine by him.

A hilarious and heartwarming coming-of-age perfect for readers of Matthew Quick and Rainbow Rowell, Highly Illogical Behavior showcases the different ways we hide ourselves from the world—and how love, tragedy, and the need for connection may be the only things to bring us back into the light.
