Absolute Brightness by James Lecesne (YA Lecesne)
Phoebe's life in Neptune, NJ was never very normal but things really get crazy when her cousin Leonard moves into her house. Leonard is the extreme in every sense of the word. He prides himself in helping find the beauty in every moment; he is also a target because of his flamboyant way of dressing and expression. Phoebe can not stand Leonard and doesn’t understand why he has to be so crazy. Only when Leonard disappears mysteriously does Phoebe start to understand and appreciate who he is and what he has done for the people around him. The lost of Leonard helps Phoebe discover herself.
On April 21st at 7pm the Paramus Library group known as OPEN PAGES will discuss this book over pizza and soda. This group is for teens in grades 9- 12. If you would like to join us there are copies of this book located at the circulation desk. Please call and register by April 6th so we know how much pizza to get.
