7PM WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 27 Teen Event | Ellen Hopkins | Rumble


#1 New York Times bestselling author Ellen Hopkins visits with Rumble, the story that explores the highly charged landscapes of faith and forgiveness with brilliant sensitivity and emotional resonance.

Hopkins again tackles hot-button subjects through free verse, taking on cyberbullying, censorship, the role of religion, and the difficulties of veterans returning from war. At the center of her overstuffed but well-constructed story is smart, opinionated 18-year-old Matt, who is struggling with anger and a disintegrating family following the suicide of his gay younger brother, Luke. Matt leans on his girlfriend, Hayden, for support, while raging against her religion and the evangelical Christians whose bullying he blames for Luke's death. When Hayden's father tries to get the school board to remove copies of The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Matt counters that "Maybe if the kids who drove over the brink had read the right books, they would've understood that being gay doesn't make you bad or even different." A violent twist very late in the story leaves Matt with new, life-altering challenges. Still, Hopkins expertly documents Matt's increasing ability to accept and love others in his life, and eventually himself.

Book: Matthew Turner doesn't have faith in anything. Not in family--his is a shambles after his younger brother was bullied into suicide; not in so-called friends who turn their backs when things get tough; not in some all-powerful creator who lets too much bad stuff happen; and certainly not in some "It Gets Better" psychobabble. No matter what his girlfriend, Hayden, says about faith and forgiveness, there's no way Matt's letting go of blame. He's decided to "live large and go out with a huge bang," and whatever happens happens. But when a horrific event plunges Matt into a dark, silent place, he hears a Rumble...a Rumble that wakes him up, calling everything he's ever disbelieved into question.
