Booktalk #1

Imagine a world where humans have finally eradicated all disease, accidents, and even death. Now it is up to a respected and dreaded group of individuals known as Scythes to regulate the human population through a process called “gleaning.” What does it take to become a Scythe? Two apprentices, Citra and Rowan, are about to find out as they undertake the challenge of Scythe training. The dilemma now is that only one of them will be to accomplish this goal. You will not be able to put this exciting dystopian thriller by award-winning author Neal Shusterman down!

Booktalk #2

Scythe is a science fiction book set in the future where the human population is immortal. The only way to die is to be randomly killed or gleaned by professional reapers known as “scythes.” Citra and Rowan are two teenagers who have been selected to apprentice as scythes. They must learn the art of killing and understand the need. But, in a twist of fate, only one will be chosen to become a scythe and the winner will have to glean the loser.
