RAVENNA - Book Club - All About Lulu by Jonathan Evison

April 25, 2018 - 7:00pm

Ravenna

Weakness has always been a concern for William Miller: growing up vegetarian in a family of bodybuilders will do that to a person. But William is further weakened by the death of his mother, the arrival of a new step-mother, and his irrepressible crush on his new step-sister, Lulu. As Lulu faces down her own challenges, William watches his life shift into tumult and despair. Once Lulu departs for college, Will goes into the world to find himself -- discovering Western philosophy, a cruel dating world, enduring friendship, and, ultimately, his true calling.

Then he meets Jessica, a girl whose life is turning out differently than the way she'd imagined it, too. Now Jessica needs Rescue by her side to help her accomplish everyday tasks.
