Sobre o livro
Its bad enough that Nicks sister is dead and, in some bizarre attempt to force him to confront his grief, his parents are shipping him off to Jesus camp. But hes also being haunted by the ghost of Jack Kerouacwhos surprisingly annoying, for a genius.
And if arguing with a dead beat poet werent enough to qualify Nick for antipsychotics, hes pretty sure Eden Springs Church Camp is going to drive him insane. The campers ride donkeys into the desert campsite; a retired magician dressed as Jesus seems obsessed with converting him; and Nicks practically shunned for uttering the words Harry Potter.
Worst of all is the PC Box, into which every camper is required to place a nightly prayer or confession. In hopes of getting Jack to stop nagging him about it, Nick scribbles down his darkest secreta secret about his sisters deathand drops it in the box.
But then the box is stolen, with Nicks secret inside of it. When campers confessions start appearing around the camp, Nick is desperate to get the box backbefore the world learns the truth about what he did. The truth he cant even face, himself.
Snarky, surreal, and insightful,Madness Happens Here is an astonishing debut about the strangeness of life, death, and grief, and the even stranger things we do to cope.
