Welcome to the Newton Free Library's Books & Brownies Club! We meet (usually) on the last Tuesday or Wednesday of the month to discuss a variety of genres. This club has been meeting for almost five years and is a great discussion group with teens in grades 9-12 and their adult(s).
Upcoming Discussions: April 25, May 31, June 27, July 19, August 29
What if you aren't the Chosen One? The one who's supposed to fight the zombies, or the soul-eating ghosts, or whatever the heck this new thing is, with the blue lights and the death? What if you're like Mikey? Who just wants to graduate and go to prom and maybe finally work up the courage to ask Henna out before someone goes and blows up the high school. Again. Because sometimes there are problems bigger than this week's end of the world, and sometimes you just have to find the extraordinary in your ordinary life. Even if your best friend is worshiped by mountain lions.
In his last year of high school, seventeen-year-old virgin Cliff Sparks has to figure out what to do with his life, including how to meet new girl Jillian and how to deal with old issues with his unemployed father.
