Book Club Nuts and Bolts

We will be reading one book a month. We will have weekly group discussions if you are interested with a final discussion at the end of the month. The new book choice for the following month will be posted at least two weeks before the beginning of the new month. You can pick and choose if you want to participate. We will have at least one giveaway each month for our readers! If you have any book suggestions, please email either Jessica or MiMi. We are in new territory, so we might have to work out some kinks as we go along. We hope you make new friends and have fun!

Ladies, I am so sorry that I'm late on posting our choice for November. Can you believe November is only a couple weeks away??
I'm excited about this pick because this is one of my favorite authors! I hope it's a good one, but she's never let me down, so I'm thinking it will be!

Without further ado...
From the author's website:
To those on the outside, the Powells are a happy family, but then a devastating accident destroys their fragile facade. When seven-year-old Henry is blamed for the tragedy, he tries desperately to make his parents happy again.As Henry grows up, he is full of potential—a talented sportsman with an academic mind and a thirst for adventure—but soon he questions if the guilt his parents have burdened him with has left him unable to escape his anguished family or their painful past.With a delicate touch and masterful attention to detail, New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Flock invites us to meet a man both ordinary and extraordinary, and to experience a life that has yet to be lived.On the show Sunday Papers, WGN-Radio's Rick Kogan called the main character "one of the most interesting characters in contemporary fiction."

I thought maybe I'd put another Extra Credit book up since we're reading Elizabeth Flock in November. One of her best books is a book called Me and Emma. I absolutely loved that book. So if you want, have time, etc; pick this one up too and let me know what you think!

  1. I've read Me and Emma and look forward to another one by Elizabeth Flock.

  2. I hope to find the time to jump in on this. I'm new to Elizabeth Flock.

  3. Ok maybe I can actually not be a loser and get both of these read!

  4. Oh goody! I am so excited. I AM going to the libary to see if they have either of these. I know my checkbook will thank me. Can't wait!!

  5. I'm so excited!! I've never read this author before.

  6. I am ready to read in November! I can't believe it is almost November. I haven't read anything by Flock either.
