YA Book Group

The book group met on November 11 to talk about Chris Crutcher's book Staying Fat for Sarah Byrnes. We had a heated discussion about many of the issues in the book, including the role of adult authority, religion, and other controversial topics in school. Chris Crutcher has written many other books what are equally as engrossing. Check out his website at http://www.chriscrutcher.com for more information about the author and his books.

The book group chose Son of the Mob by Gordon Korman for their December meeting. It is a humorous take on a mob family, told from the point of view of a teenage son who wants nothing to do with "the life." This book has been ordered and should be in soon. Our next meeting will be held on Thursday, December 9, from 3:30 to 5:00.
