Big Library Read: Reverie

Big Library Read: Reverie

Alameda County's Global Ebook Club will be discussing Ryan La Sala's Reverie, a young adult fantasy novel about what happens when the secret worlds people hide within themselves become real.

Big Library Read is a worldwide digital book club, and an opportunity for readers to read the same book at the same time without waitlists or holds. OverDrive allows all library users unrestricted access to eBook and eAudiobook formats of this title from November 2 – November 16. 

Please register below and you'll be sent the Zoom meeting details.


All Kane Montgomery knows for certain is that the police found him half-dead in the river. He can’t remember anything since an accident robbed him of his memories a few weeks ago. And the world feels different—reality itself seems different.

So when three of his classmates claim to be his friends and the only people who can tell him what’s truly going on, he doesn’t know what to believe or who he can trust. But as he and the others are dragged into unimaginable worlds that materialize out of nowhere—the gym warps into a subterranean temple, a historical home nearby blooms into a Victorian romance rife with scandal and sorcery—Kane realizes that nothing in his life is an accident, and only he can stop their world from unraveling.

We’d love to see you like we do at the library, but also understand if you are still in your bathrobe.
