One Monday Night Monthly—6:00-7:00 PM
The Junior Book Club for grades 4 to 6 is continuing in January! Join us for a book discussion, snacks, crafts, and activities. Book club meets once monthly on Monday night at 6:00 PM. Our next meeting will be March 27th to discuss The League of Unexceptional Children by Gitty Daneshvari.
Ruby's mom is in prison, and to tell anyone the truth is to risk true friendship in this novel from the author of The Summer Before Boys that accurately and sensitively addresses a subject too often overlooked.
Eleven-year-old Ruby Danes is about to start middle school, and only her aunt knows her deepest, darkest, most secret secret: her mother is in prison.
Then Margalit Tipps moves into Ruby's condo complex, and the two immediately hit it off. Ruby thinks she's found her first true-blue friend but can she tell Margalit the truth about her mom? Maybe not. Because it turns out that Margalit's family history seems closely connected to the very event that put her mother in prison, and if Ruby comes clean, she could lose everything she cares about most. (Ages 8-12)
