Young Adult Book Discussion Group

The group met for it's end of the school year pizza party and to discuss Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins on May 9th. A few members of the group LOVED the book, and said part of why it is so good is the subsequent books in the series, with the 6th book to be released shortly. A couple other members of the group were only lukewarm in their review. By the end of the meeting the pizza was gone, and we'll be meeting on Friday, June 20th @ 3:30 PM to discuss Escape! The Story of the Great Houdini by Sid Fleischman. If you are interested in attending, stop by the Youth Services Desk to register and get a copy of the book!

Have you read Gregor the Overlander? What did you think of the book?
