YAY for YA (Ages 13+) Tuesday, November 12th @6:30pm
The book of the month is Wild Bird by Wendelin Van Draanen.
3:47 a.m. That’s when they come for Wren Clemens. She’s hustled out of her house and into a waiting car, then a plane, and then taken on a forced march into the desert. This is what happens to kids who’ve gone so far off the rails, their parents don’t know what to do with them any more. This is wilderness therapy camp.
The Wren who arrives in the Utah desert is angry and bitter, and blaming everyone but herself. But angry can’t put up a tent. And bitter won’t start a fire. Wren’s going to have to admit she needs help if she’s going to survive.
We meet one Tuesday evening of each month from 6:30-7:30pm to discuss the book selected. Candy and thought-provoking conversation will be served. All interested teens, young adults, and those young at heart are welcome.We have opened the group from just teens to parents of teens or those very interested in young adult literature. We tend to read ‘edgy’ books with moral dilemmas.
Please ask for a copy of the current book at the front desk.
Register once and we’ll keep your name on until June. Non-resident friends are welcome.
