For the May meeting of Book Buddies we will be discussing A Long Way from Chicago by Richard Peck. If you haven't read it yet, you are in for a real treat. Set during the Great Depression, Joey tells the tale of his annual visit to his grandmother's house in the country. But as you will quickly find out, Grandma Dowell is not your typical grandmother.
At the next Book Buddies meeting we will discuss The Name of This Book is Secret by Pseudonymous Bosch. This is the story of two eleven-year-old misfits who try to solve the mystery of a dead magician and stop the evil Dr. L and Ms. Mauvais, who are searching for the secret of immortality.
We will have a lively discussion, a spirited activity and a delicious snack.
At our next Book Buddies meeting we will be discussing Chasing Vermeer by Blue Balliett. If you enjoy a good mystery, this is the book for you. When seemingly unrelated and strange events start to happen and a precious Vermeer painting disappears, eleven-year-olds Petra and Calder combine their talents to solve an international art scandal.
We will have a lively discussion, play some games and have a snack.
