Catch & Release

By Blythe Woolston

In two novels, Blythe Woolston has developed a unique and completely recognizeable style that has a strong appeal.

Blythe Woolston's sophomore effort is another unique and provocative examination of human suffering and the meaning of survival. Her protagonists are 18 year-old Polly, the narrator, and Odd, who is a year younger and several degrees more impulsive. Polly and Odd are the only survivors of a MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, also known as flesh-eating bacteria) outbreak that killed several people in her town. They did not survive unscathed.

  • Strong, sympathetic voice takes on timeless theme of teenage yearning for direction and connection.
  • Fleshing eating virus as a hook.
  • Female narrator
