Young Adult Book Club

Young adult books are inspiring, emotional, transformational, and more. The genre has greatly expanded in the past 10 years, and many YA books are enjoyed by people of all ages, making its title almost a misnomer. They're so infectious that we wanted to start a book club specifically for them!

Led by our booksellers Daphne and Olivia, the Young Adult Book Club will meet periodically at the bookstore to discuss a work of young adult fiction. The YA Book Club has met on occasion at Acton-Boxborough Regional High School, in cooperation with ABRHS librarian Anna Secino.

One Of Us Is Lying, by Karen McManus
