January Book Club - DAY
Time & Location
Bring your kids and we'll talk about the book while they play.
From the Newberry Award winning author, Meg Medina, this book takes place in New York, summer 1977. Nora Lopez is seventeen, in love with both a new guy and disco music. But the city is besieged by arson, a massive blackout, and a serial killer named Son of Sam who shoots young women on the streets. And her troubles don’t even end there. Her brother, Hector, is growing more threatening by the day, and her mother is helpless or unwilling to stop his decline. Life is a series of secrets, with tempers and temperatures running high. What will it take for Nora to survive? Finalist for the Los Angeles Book Prize. More about the book: https://megmedina.com/books/burn-baby-burn/
