We Need to Talk About Kevin is a 2003 novel by Lionel Shriver, published by Serpent’s Tail, about a fictional school massacre. It is written from the perspective of the killer’s mother, Eva Khatchadourian, and documents her attempt to come to terms with her son Kevin and the murders he committed. Although told in the first person as a series of letters from Eva to her husband, the novel’s structure also strongly resembles that of a thriller. The novel, Shriver’s seventh, won the 2005 Orange Prize, a U.K.-based prize for female authors of any country writing in English. In 2011 the novel was adapted into an eponymous film.
This book is aimed for High School and above. Please respond here if you need a copy of the book and need me to place it on hold for you.

!! WATER SUPPLY WARNING DECLARED !!
CITY OF EFFINGHAM, KANSAS
Prolonged heat and drought conditions have resulted in falling water levels in the city’s water supply wells. This is a very serious situation and has prompted the Governing Body of the City of Effingham to declare a “Water Supply Warning”. All city water customers are urged to voluntarily restrict all non-essential water use effective July 25, 2012, and continuing until further notice. Non-essential water use includes, but is not limited to, outdoor watering of gardens, lawns, trees, shrubs, plants, parks, playing fields and other recreational areas; filling of private swimming pools, washing of motor vehicles, boats and trailers, except at a commercial car wash facility; washing the exterior of any building or structure.
If everyone does their part to conserve water during this trying time, we hope to avoid the necessity of implementing stricter, mandatory water use restrictions. Unfortunately, if the severe drought conditions continue and voluntary measures fail to stabilize the diminishing water levels in our water supply wells, the governing body will be forced to implement such restrictions.
Please do your part and restrict your non-essential water use until you are notified that this situation no longer exists.
If you have questions regarding this matter, please call the City Office at 833-4471 between 8:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
THANK YOU FOUR COOPERATION
THE GOVERNING BODY OF THE CITY OF EFFINGHAM, KANSAS
