Fostering the Love of Reading - "Slammed" by Colleen Hoover /Studio 455 Photography, Central Wisconsin Photographer

For February's book of the month we choose to donate "Slammed" by Colleen Hoover. This young adult fiction selection introduces the reader to the concept of Slam Poetry - a unique and beautiful art. The sibling relationships in Slammed are laugh out loud funny and it tells a love story so real it will resonate with readers young and old. Colleen Hoover self-published this book as a Christmas gift for her mother and it quickly rose in popularity to become a New York Times Best Seller. It is easy to see why it became so popular - check it out yourself at Patterson Memorial Library!
