June Teen Book Discussion 6/8/16 @ 6:30pm (Grades 8-12)
The book of the month is:
Bruiser by Neal Shusterman
Award-winning author Neal Shusterman has crafted a chilling and unforgettable novel about the power of unconditional friendship, the complex gear workings of a family, and the sacrifices we endure for the people we love. Tennyson: Don’t get me started on the Bruiser. He was voted ‘Most Likely to Get the Death Penalty’ by the entire school. He’s the kid no one knows, no one talks to, and everyone hears disturbing rumors about. So why is my sister, Brontë, dating him? One of these days she’s going to take in the wrong stray dog, and it’s not going to end well.
Brontë: My brother has no right to talk about Brewster that way—no right to threaten him. There’s a reason why Brewster can’t have friends—why he can’t care about too many people. Because when he cares about you, things start to happen. Impossible things that can’t be explained. I know, because they’re happening to me.
We meet the SECOND Wednesday evening of each month from 6:30-7:30pm to discuss the book selected. Refreshments and thought-provoking conversation will be served. All interested teenagers are welcome. 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.
