First Young Adult Book Club Pick

Never grew out of young adult fiction? Neither did we! Join our brand-new book club for adults reading YA books (loosely defined as for ages 12-18). We’ll meet the last Tuesday of each month at the store from 6:30–7:30 p.m. The first month’s meeting will be August 25. 

when you reach meOur first pick is Rebecca Stead’s When You Reach Me. If you remember and love Madeline L’Engle’s Wrinkle in Time series, you’ll have a lot in common with the protagonist, Miranda. She’ll take you with her as this engaging, mysterious story unfolds.

Would you like to join us? E-mail us at or call 703-548-4092. We can order and hold copies of the book for you. Make sure and finish it by August 25 to take part in the discussion.

Not located in the area? Don’t worry, we’ll be posting discussion notes after the meeting. We would love to know what you think of the book, and you can let us know here on the blog.

When You Reach Me, Wendy Lamb Books (Random House), $15.99
