  • #ReviewsDayTuesday Angry Management by Chris Crutcher
    Mr. Nak’s Angry Management group is a place for misfits. A place for stories. And, man, does this crew have stories. There’s Angus Bethune and Sarah Byrnes, who can hide from everyone but each other. Together, they will embark on a road trip full of haunting endings and glimmering beginnings. Chris Crutcher fills these three stories with raw emotion. They are about insecurity, anger, and prejudice. But they are also about love, freedom, and power. About surviving. Checkout (or hold) a copy with the library staff!
