SAILS Library Network Participating in International Big Library Read Program

Library card holders will be able to borrow and read (or listen to) the YA romance, Anatomy of a Misfit by Andrea Portes, starting Oct. 13th and ending the morning of Oct. 28, by visiting:

Title description: In this Mean Girls meets The Perks of Being a Wallflower tale, narrator Anika Dragomir is the third most popular girl at Pound High School. But inside, she knows she’s a freak; she can’t stop thinking about former loner Logan McDonough, who showed up on the first day of tenth grade hotter, bolder, and more mysterious than ever. Logan is fascinating, troubled and off-limits. The Pound High queen bee will make Anika’s life hell if she’s seen with him. So Anika must choose–ignore her feelings and keep her social status? Or follow her heart and risk becoming a pariah. Which will she pick? And what will she think of her choice when an unimaginable tragedy strikes, changing her forever? An absolutely original new voice in YA in a story that will start important conversations–and tear at your heart.

Big Library Read is an international program that gives libraries and library patrons unlimited simultaneous access to a popular title during the program dates, creating a virtual, global book club. Interested patrons will be able borrow Anatomy of a Misfit using a valid library card, and read on all major computers and devices, including iPhone®, iPad®, Nook®, Android™ phones and tablets, and Kindle®, without worrying about wait lists or holds. Titles will automatically expire at the end of the lending period, and best of all, there are no late fees! The MP3 audiobook is also available to download!

The title will be featured in a prominent location on our OverDrive-powered website. The featured format will be the eBook, and it will include a note and link to the audiobook version. All card holders can borrow the title at any time during the program to participate in the Big Library Read. The title will expire at the end of the lending period for each user, not at the end of the program.

The Big Library Read program is made possible through a partnership between OverDrive, the leading supplier of eBooks and more to libraries, and HarperCollins, publisher of Andrea Portes’ latest title.
