I'm so excited to reveal the official BOOK CLUB DISCUSSION GUIDE for my first novel for adults, ROOMS. It is available HERE and has exclusive discussion questions from me that you won't find any place else. I hope you will add ROOMS to your next Book Club pick, because....

If you pick ROOMS for your book club, I want to Skype with your group the day you discuss it. We can chat about the questions in the discussion guide, or make up our own course for conversation. I'm happy to answer any questions you have about my writing process, writing for adults vs teens, and the themes in the book. Maybe we'll even share some ghost stories of our own! And if your book club is local to NY, NJ or CT, I might even drop by for an in-person visit!

So don't forget to download the ROOMS Book Club Discussion guide and email me at laurenoliverbooks@gmail.com if you've chosen ROOMS as your next group read!

See you soon,
Lauren

 

Publishers Weekly Book Review - Rooms
February, 8, 2014
 
YA-bestseller Oliver’s (Before I Fall) assured adult debut skillfully weaves an innovative ghost story into a nuanced domestic drama. Upon Richard Walker’s death, his scattered family returns to clear out his house, which they hope to inherit. His ex-wife, Caroline, soothes bad marital memories with alcohol. His grown daughter, Minna, brings along her own six-year-old daughter, Amy, and a deep-seated resentment of her father, while his suicidal son, Trenton, struggles with teenage angst in the aftermath of a debilitating car accident. Trenton first senses the haunting presence of others in the home. The spirits of Alice and Sandra, two women who lived in the house at different times, now find themselves confined there together, squabbling with each other as they watch the family cope with Richard’s messy legacy. Soon a new female spirit close to Trenton’s age enters the house, and Alice conceives a dangerous plan to free herself of its prison. Oliver makes vivid use of both dead and living characters—all of whom are trapped in the past and striving toward a happier existence—to narrate her intricate, suspenseful story. The house’s breathing residents and ghosts alike find freedom, and the story culminates with an ending that arrives in dramatic and surprising ways. (Sept.)
