Join us as we celebrate the launch of local author Royce Scott Buckingham’s latest young adult novel, The Terminals. When 19 year-old Cam Cody is diagnosed with a terminal illness, he expects to spend the rest of his life in a hospital bed. Then one night a mysterious man offers Cam the chance to join a covert unit of young “terminals” who spend the last year of their lives executing dangerous missions to make the world a better place. With nothing to lose, Cam is in. Dropped from a helicopter in a secret tropical location, he meets his nine teammates, who don’t seem sick at all. In fact, Zara is beautiful, Donnie is an amazing athlete, and Calliope sings like a bird. They’re all enhanced with an experimental steroid, TS-8, which suppresses their symptoms and heightens their abilities. They’ll still die, but they’ll die superheroes. Cam joins this extreme spy team, and they begin pulling clandestine operations in multiple countries. But as his teammates fall around him, he starts to receive cryptic messages from a haggard survivor of last year’s class hiding in the forest, who reveals that the program isn’t what it claims to be...
