Are you in fifth grade? Sixth grade? Seventh grade? Eighth?

Do you love books and wish you had somewhere to discuss them?

Then come to our new Tween Book Club! This month we'll read and discuss Down the Rabbit Hole* by Peter Abrahams, an exciting mystery adventure. We have this book in print and audio CD. If there are no copies available in our catalog contact Miss Jenise, she's got the book and audiobook set aside for readers who want to join the club.

Of course no book discussion is complete without snacks. Please register here so we're sure to have enough for everyone.

*From the publisher:
Welcome to Echo Falls, home of a thousand secrets. Ingrid is in the wrong place at the wrong time. Or at least her shoes are. And getting them back will mean getting tangled up in a murder investigation as complicated as the mysteries solved by her idol, Sherlock Holmes. With soccer practice, schoolwork, and the lead role in her town's production of Alice in Wonderland, Ingrid is swamped. But as things in Echo Falls keep getting curiouser and curiouser, Ingrid realizes she must solve the murder on her own -- before it's too late!

        There are many spaces available.
