Short, poetic and gorgeously written. . . . The world LaCour creates is fragile but profoundly humane.” —The New York Times Book Review

An extraordinary work.” —Bookpage
You go through life thinking there’s so much you need. . . . Until you leave with only your phone, your wallet, and a picture of your mother.

The Adults Who Read YA Book Club meets to discuss any and all genres of young adult literature. Characters, themes, symbols, and the intersection of fiction and real life are all up for lively discussion. A bonus ingredient is the critical perspective of several writers in the group. Anyone interested in joining can email:
