Tween Book Club: Crush

For students grades 6-8.

Come discuss Crush by Svetlana Chmakova! Join in activities related to the book! Pizza will be served. Pizza is provided by Big Y Supermarkets - thank you!                                                              

Books are selected for ages 11-14 and may contain some PG violence or language. Pick up a copy of the book at the Front Desk! Space is limited; please register beginning October 28. Register below, or call or visit the Children's Desk.

About Crush: Jorge seems to have it all together.  He's big enough that nobody really messes with him, but he's also a genuinely sweet guy with a solid, reliable group of friends. The only time he ever really feels off his game is when he crosses paths with a certain girl... But when the group dynamic among the boys starts to shift, will Jorge be able to balance what his friends expect of him versus what he actually wants?
