Reading 4 Life Teen Book Club – Chester Main

September 19 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Curious to see what the current book club read is?
September’s book for the Reading 4 Life Chester Main Teen Book Club is Refugee by Alan Gratz. The Chester Main Teen Book Club is for 6th to 9th graders interested in joining a group of their peers in reading and discussing a book monthly. This book club meets on the 3th Thursday of each month.
Next Meeting: Thursday, September 19, 2024
Summary:
Three different kids.
One mission in common: ESCAPE.

Josef is a Jewish boy in 1930s Nazi Germany. With the threat of concentration camps looming, he and his family board a ship bound for the other side of the world…

Isabel is a Cuban girl in 1994. With riots and unrest plaguing her country, she and her family set out on a raft, hoping to find safety and freedom in America…

Mahmoud is a Syrian boy in 2015. With his homeland torn apart by violence and destruction, he and his family begin a long trek toward Europe…

All three young people will go on harrowing journeys in search of refuge. All will face unimaginable dangers–from drownings to bombings to betrayals. But for each of them, there is always the hope of tomorrow. And although Josef, Isabel, and Mahmoud are separated by continents and decades, surprising connections will tie their stories together in the end.
