Hi again! I told my group about these notes--they thought that was pretty fun. :) We're in Chicagoland. I passed the book on to another avid reader, and she says she will bring it to another book club to pass on to another reader. It's always interesting to me which books make good book club choices. Often ones that everyone loved seem to lead to short discussions. We have one group member who usually chooses YA novels. I personally really enjoy YA novels, but she tends to choose what I call 'bubble gum fiction'--that is, you can chew and chew, but you don't get any nourishment. Entertainment, yes, but no substance. Those make for boring discussions! I love finding novels that have substance, are enjoyable to read, and have controversy without being crass or crude. Your book fits those categories.
Oh cool! You're the author! I liked your book very much. I'm quite stingy with stars, and almost never give anything higher than 3 stars. I gave yours 4 stars. I got your book as an ARC and plan on passing it on to my fellow book club members tomorrow night. I imagine it will make the rounds, because it's one that will appeal to all of them. It would be a good book club choice, though we already have our schedule chosen through July. Maybe for next year!
