The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner

Publication Date: March 8th 2016

Goodreads Summary
Dill has had to wrestle with vipers his whole life—at home, as the only son of a Pentecostal minister who urges him to handle poisonous rattlesnakes, and at school, where he faces down bullies who target him for his father’s extreme faith and very public fall from grace.

He and his fellow outcast friends must try to make it through their senior year of high school without letting the small-town culture destroy their creative spirits and sense of self. Graduation will lead to new beginnings for Lydia, whose edgy fashion blog is her ticket out of their rural Tennessee town. And Travis is content where he is thanks to his obsession with an epic book series and the fangirl turning his reality into real-life fantasy.

Their diverging paths could mean the end of their friendship. But not before Dill confronts his dark legacy to attempt to find a way into the light of a future worth living.

I have been on a huge contemporary kick this past month and I have been searching for a book that I can just lose myself in. This looks like it could be that book. I feel like this story is one I will definitely be able to identify with and emotionally, The Serpent King will probably end up packing a punch or two. I can’t wait to get my hands on it.

What’s your most anticipated?
