YAY for YA (Ages 13+) Tuesday, January 14, 2020 @6:30pm

allegedlyThe book of the month is Allegedly by Tiffany D. Jackson.

 

Allegedly. She didn’t say much in that first interview with detectives, and the media filled in the only blanks that mattered: A white baby had died while under the care of a churchgoing black woman and her nine-year-old daughter. The public convicted Mary and the jury made it official. But did she do it? She wouldn’t say.

Mary survived six years in baby jail before being dumped in a group home. The house isn’t really “home”–no place where you fear for your life can be considered a home. Home is Ted, who she meets on assignment at a nursing home. There wasn’t a point to setting the record straight before, but now she’s got Ted–and their unborn child–to think about. When the state threatens to take her baby, Mary must find the voice to fight her past. And her fate lies in the hands of the one person she distrusts the most: her Momma. No one knows the real Momma.

But who really knows the real Mary?

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.
