9780061914829: Period 8

In this terrifying and provocative novel by the bestselling and award-winning author of Deadline and Staying Fat for Sarah Byrnes, a teenage boy tries to uncover what happened to a girl who has vanished from his high school. Was she abducted, or did she run for her life?

Paul "The Bomb" Baum tells the truth. No matter what. It was something he learned at Sunday school. But telling the truth can cause problems, and not just minor ones. And as Paulie discovers, finding the truth can be even more problematic. Period 8 is supposed to be that one period in high school where the truth can shine, a safe haven. Only what Paulie and Hannah (his ex-girlfriend, unfortunately) and his other classmates don't know is that the ultimate liar is in their midst. Terrifying, thought-provoking, and original, this novel combines all the qualities of a great psychological thriller with the controversy, ethics, athletics, humor, and raw emotion of a classic Crutcher story.

Product Description:

Period 8 has always been a safe haven, and high school senior Paulie 'The Bomb' Baum has always been a constant attendee since freshman year. As Paulie, Hannah, and their friends - along with the help of sympathetic teacher - try to unravel the mystery of a missing classmate (and the mystery of the human heart), the ultimate bully takes aim at the school. Who is a friend and who is not?

Review:

“Period 8 is the best of Crutcher: warmth, humor, and spot-on teen reality, but coupled with terrifying intensity and a shocking ending.” (Laurie Halse Anderson, author of Wintergirls and Speak)

Praise for Deadline: “As usual, Crutcher does not hesitate to incorporate serious subject matter within an engaging first-person narrative.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) (Starred Review))

“Crutcher uses dark humor and self-deprecation effectively to avoid maudlin situations, and teens will appreciate the respectful tone of the work.” (School Library Journal)

Praise for Whale Talk:“Crutcher offers an unusual yet resonant mixture of black comedy and tragedy that lays bare the superficiality of the high school scene.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

“Cataclysmic and triumphant.” (Kirkus Reviews)
