Thank you so much to the wonderful group of teachers who joined us for book group last night! Talking with you all is always one of my favorite parts of the month!
We hope to see you all for our next meeting on October 6th at Bookworks from 5:00-7:00 pm to discuss October’s featured novel (if we’re not at Bookworks, check next door at Flying Star, we often end up there for coffee and snacks).
We are reading La Línea (Age 10 and Up) by Ann Jaramillo.
Here’s a sneak peek into the book: (from Goodreads)
Miguel’s life is just beginning. Or so he thinks. Fifteen-year-old Miguel leaves his rancho deep in Mexico to migrate to California across la linea, the border, in a debut novel of life-changing, cliff-hanging moments.
But Miguel’s carefully laid plans change suddenly when his younger sister Elena stows away and follows him. Together, Miguel and Elena endure hardships and danger on their journey of desperation and desire, loyalty and betrayal. An epilogue, set ten years after the events of the story, shows that you can’t always count on dreams–even the ones that come true.
Be sure to get entered in our drawing for a free copy of the book!! All you have to do is comment on any blog post by September 26th!
When we meet in person to discuss Ann Jaramillo’s book, we’ll also be raffling off a copy of next month’s featured book, The Tequila Worm (Ages 12 and up). Join us that evening to be entered!
We hope to see you on October 6th!
