December Book Club
Well thank you to everyone who wanted to be involved in the last book club for the year.
We have some terrific Lit Club Leaders returning and a few new members too! Welcome to silene and zitongbooks – you have and welcome back to imosshelf, bookhaven, lauraamabel, bookwithbane and sylvs. There is a copy of the book in the post right now for you all!
We still have room for a couple more Lit Club Discussion leaders so let me know! Comment below!
Even though she lives on the wrong side of town, 16-year-old Santee believes her world is like ours: that running late for curfew will only get you grounded, and that the government tries to keep its good citizens safe and secure. Until one night, everything changes.
On her way home from school, Santee takes a detour to the outskirts of town with a boy that she likes – and then finds herself stranded overnight when his car breaks down. When she’s finally able to get a lift towards home the next morning, Santee discovers that everything has changed. A ‘safety border’ – a wall – has gone up around her part of town, imprisoning her family and trapping her on the outside…
The book is described as ‘A vivid, captivating contemporary YA novel about the power of resistance, from a stunning Australian debut author. Perfect for fans of The Handmaid’s Tale and Z for Zachariah.’
Which sounds brilliant to me! So get reading and get posting! Let’s make this Lit Club happen!
