Calling all tweens! We'll be discussing Front Desk by Kelly Yang, for September's virtual Club Read meeting.
Members from both our Tempe and Phoenix groups will come together online to discuss our July 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 months, Changing Hands Bookstore's Summer Reading program, and reveal October's Club Read selection!

Instructions and details about the Zoom meeting will be sent at a later date
WHAT IS CLUB READ?
ABOUT THE BOOK
Mia Tang has a lot of secrets.
Number 1: She lives in a motel, not a big house. Every day, while her immigrant parents clean the rooms, ten-year-old Mia manages the front desk of the Calivista Motel and tends to its guests.
Number 2: Her parents hide immigrants. And if the mean motel owner, Mr. Yao, finds out they've been letting them stay in the empty rooms for free, the Tangs will be doomed.
Number 3: She wants to be a writer. But how can she when her mom thinks she should stick to math because English is not her first language?
It will take all of Mia's courage, kindness, and hard work to get through this year. Will she be able to hold on to her job, help the immigrants and guests, escape Mr. Yao, and go for her dreams?
