It's been eighteen months since the Raxter School for Girls was put under quarantine. Since the Tox hit and pulled Hetty's life out from under her.

It started slow. First the teachers died one by one. Then it began to infect the students, turning their bodies strange and foreign. Now, cut off from the rest of the world and left to fend for themselves on their island home, the girls don't dare wander outside the school's fence, where the Tox has made the woods wild and dangerous. They wait for the cure they were promised as the Tox seeps into everything.

But when Byatt goes missing, Hetty will do anything to find her, even if it means breaking quarantine and braving the horrors that lie beyond the fence. And when she does, Hetty learns that there's more to their story, to their life at Raxter, than she could have ever thought true.

What is a BOM (Book of the Month)?

At NRBC we use a more structured approach to our BOMs. A reading schedule is posted prior to the start date and discussion questions are posted each day regarding that section of the book. We ask for volunteers to write the discussion questions for each section, and to engage with responses from the other readers.

I guess so! It's still very fresh in my mind. *shudder*

(Random Q but would I still get Ruby Gem Coins for answering DQs even if I'm not actively reading the book?)

(Random Q the 2nd: I can't read it for Lava but would I still get possible regeneration points for discussion/answering DQs?)

Cat (cat_uk) | 6487 comments Mod
Random Q1: dunno. The coins are not my area of expertise. I guess so - the coins are rewarding participation, after all. Though answers of "can't remember" against every question would not fit the bill! ;-P

Random Q2: hmmmmm..... actually, I think Lava will be over by then - it's due to end 7 Oct, before this is BOM

HeatherH (bkwrm85) | 11 comments Hoping to participate on this one - which would be my first BOTM with this group! I'm like 17th in line at my library on 10 copies so fingers crossed I can get it in time.

Oh right, Lava will end before this BOM. Right now we're in that moment where it feels like it will go on forever and ever! :D

Haha on "can't remember" because oh, I DEFINITELY remember. Well, I guess we'll see how much I end up chatting/answering stuff here. I still own the book so I can always refer back to it anyway.

I assume that, vis-a-vis TT, participation in this one for me would still be only for fun (and possibly gem coins) but not for points, because I'm not reading the book during TT.
Oh well!
