If I Stay Discussion 11/17 @ 4pm!

Hello again YA Book Club Members!

We'll be meeting again this Wednesday night at the library to discuss
If I Stay by Gayle Forman. (4pm) A short but moving novel, it's PERFECT for discussion.

If you haven't had a chance to read this book, we'd love to have you come discuss it with us anyway...according to the author, the end is up for exploration and we'll be careful not to divulge any spoilers. : )

We'll also be snacking and making plans for our next YA book club meeting on Holiday vacation.
Bring an idea for which book you would like to read next...or a suggestion for a holiday party activity.
See you soon! Sincerely, Jessica

Romeo & Juliet

Harper Teen Publishers have re-printed Romeo and Juliet with a spin. Here we have the classic story of forbidden love by Shakespeare himself paired with:

Juliet's Story by Jaqueline Ritten - the precursor to the classic.

Not to mention an excerpt entitled:

What if Romeo and Juliet lived now and had Facebook?

"When Romeo first lays eyes on the bewitching Juliet, it's love at first sight. But hough thier love runs true and deep, it is also COMPLETELY forbidden. With family and fate determined to keep them apart, will Romeo and Juliet find a way to be together?

How cam'st though hither, tell me, and wherefore?
The orchard walls are high and hard to climb,
And the place death, considering who thou art,
If any of my kinsmen find thee here.

With love's light wings did I o'erperch these walls;
For stony limits cannot hold love out,
And what love can do that dares love attempt.
Therefore thy kinsmen are no let tom me.

If they see thee, they will murder thee...
