BOOK CLUBS RECOMMEND
Reading Suggestions from Book Clubs

 

Teenage Werewolf Thursday Night Readers of Eugene, Oregon, recommend:

  

My Teenage Werewolf: A Mother, A Daughter, A Journey Through the Thicket of Adolescence by Lauren Kessler (Viking Adult, 2010), Nonfiction, 256 pages

 

"In this book, the author shadows her daughter, Lizzie, for about a year when Lizzie is in middle school. The author works hard to understand exactly what her daughter is experiencing while reflecting on her own teen years. Our club loved it. We discussed how our own lives are like Lauren's (the author) and Lizzie's and how things have changed since we were in middle school. We pondered whether Lauren had done the 'right' thing, and what other options she might have had in certain situations.  And we asked ourselves: In what ways did this experience strengthen their relationship, and in what ways might it have harmed them?"
