Curious to see what the current book club read is? January's book for the Reading 4 Life Chester Main Teen Book Club is "Wild River" by Rodman Philbrick. 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 a Thursday each month. Next Meeting: Thursday, January 18, 2024 Summary: Daniel Redmayne is fast asleep on the first night of a white water rafting trip, when he's awoken by screams. The dam has failed. The river is surging, and their camp will be under water in a matter of moments. As the shrieking roar of the river rushes closer, the kids scramble to higher ground. They make it; their counselors do not. Now they're on their own, with barely any food or supplies, in the middle of the Montana wilderness. Do Daniel and his four classmates have what it takes to stay alive until they can get rescued? Alone in the wild, they forge powerful bonds -- but develop dangerous disagreements. If nature doesn't break them, they might just destroy each other. This gripping survival story from the Newbery Honor author of Wildfire is filled with adrenaline-pumping adventure and moments of true bravery. If you are interested in joining the Chester Main Teen Book Club, please call 803-377-8145 for more information. Future Dates of Book Club: January 18, 2024 February 15, 2024 March 14, 2024 April 18, 2024 May 16, 2024
