Our Teen Book Club–aka the Nerd Herd–is back at it this week. And wow…do we have a book to discuss this month! Take a look at that cover above….Marie Lu’s THE YOUNG ELITES is certainly a blockbuster book.
This is the first selection by a Nerd Herd member (instead of the Head Nerd Herder…yes, I know…this is getting to be a tongue twister), and it is a whopper of an exciting book. It’s a tragedy with a hopeful message, and I think we’ll have a great time discussing it. Lu’s book is full of adventure, special powers and secret societies. I can’t wait to hear what everyone thought.
We’ll be meeting on Wednesday from 4-5:30pm to disect the book, make some very special masks, and fill our bellies. Oh yes, and we’ll probably have a good laugh or two.
If you have a young reader at home aged 12+, we’re still taking on a few new members…and yes, we’ll be reading all summer. Why stop when there are so many great books to read?
Next up….a Harry Potter-esque adventure about special powers, secret societies and….wait….isn’t that what we’re reading this month? Yes, but this one has owls!
Head Nerd Herder, out.
