Most of the students in Book Club are voracious readers and want to gobble up the rest of the series they have been reading. We will have book talks and discussions about books we have read as well as books we want to read and take time to enjoy our love of books.
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
Mare Barrow's world is divided by blood—those with common, Red blood serve the Silver-blooded elite, who are gifted with superhuman abilities. Mare is a Red, scraping by as a thief in a poor, rural village, until a twist of fate throws her in front of the Silver court. Before the king, princes, and all the nobles, she discovers she has an ability of her own.
As Mare is drawn further into the Silver world, she risks everything and uses her new position to help the Scarlet Guard—a growing Red rebellion. -- Barnes and Noble overview
