Calling all tweens! We'll be discussing The Wonder of Wildflowers by Anna Staniszewski for June's virtual Club Read meeting.
Members from both our Tempe and Phoenix groups will come together online to discuss our June pick. It's BYOP (bring your own pizza -- or any snacks you like). We'll also talk about our favorite quarantine reads from the past two months, Changing Hands Bookstore's upcoming Summer Reading program, and reveal July's Club Read selection!
RSVP for the virtual meeting now
Instructions and details about the Zoom meeting will be sent at a later date
WHAT IS CLUB READ?
ABOUT THE BOOK
Ten-year-old Mira must balance the loyalty she feels towards her family with the desire to be accepted by her new classmates in this powerful coming-of-age story about identity, community, and finding a place to call home.
I’m not like most of my classmates. At least not yet.
My family came to this country when I was five years old, but we’re so close to becoming citizens now. This means we’ll finally be able to use Amber like everyone else. Then I will be as special as the rest of my classmates, the ones who were born here with magic already in their veins.
But most of all, no one will compare me to Daniel anymore. Daniel who doesn’t even try to fit in, who actually seems proud of being an outsider.
Once I take my first sip of Amber, I will be on the inside.
