YA Book Club

Friday, March 29, 4:00 PM5:00 PM

YA Book Club

For Teens – Registration is required.

Interested in reading different genres within YA and possibly making a friend or two? Come to our book club (now in person!) where we read a YA book each month and discuss what we liked and didn’t like about the book, as well as learn more about genres. From Mystery, to Fantasy, to Manga, to Nonfiction, we plan on touring the whole YA section.

 

Books available for checkout at the Circulation Desk.

 

This month our genre is Contemporary! We’ll be reading Yolk by Mary H.K. Choi.

Yolk

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jayne and June Baek are nothing alike. June’s three years older, a classic first-born, know-it-all narc with a problematic finance job and an equally soulless apartment (according to Jayne). Jayne is an emotionally stunted, self-obsessed basket case who lives in squalor, has egregious taste in men, and needs to get to class and stop wasting Mom and Dad’s money (if you ask June). Once thick as thieves, these sisters who moved from Seoul to San Antonio to New York together now don’t want anything to do with each other.

That is, until June gets cancer. And Jayne becomes the only one who can help her.

Flung together by circumstance, housing woes, and family secrets, will the sisters learn more about each other than they’re willing to confront? And what if while helping June, Jayne has to confront the fact that maybe she’s sick, too?
