Our November book club pick, "The Burning Girl" by Claire Messud was an intense look at the relationship between two girls as they grow up - and apart. If you're breathing you probably had an experience similar to the gals in this book, and all of us at the discussion could relate to the growing pains of middle school.
We even had the chance to talk with Messud herself about why on earth she wanted to re-visit the lives of middle school girls...
We won't give any spoiler alerts here (don't watch the video if you haven't finished) - but it was a great discussion filled with juice middle and high school stories. Oy vey!
We're taking a break in December for the holidays, and will announce when we're meeting in January soon. Sign up to join our bookclub here!
