Book Club: because reading a great book and then not being able to discuss it is like winning tattslotto and not telling anyone about it!
ABOUT THE BOOK
All The Things That Could Go Wrong by Stewart Foster
There are two sides to every story...
Dan is angry. Nothing has been the same since his big brother left, and he's taking it out on the nearest and weakest target: Alex.
Alex is struggling. His severe OCD makes it hard for him to leave the house, especially when Dan and his gang are waiting for him at school...
Then the boys' mums arrange for them to meet up and finish building the raft that Dan started with his brother.
Two enemies stuck together for the whole of the school holidays - what could possibly go wrong?
ABOUT BOOK CLUB
Our Year 4 - 6 Book Club meets on the fourth Friday of every month at The Little Bookroom at 4pm. It’s for kids in grades five and six who want to find a great new read, chat about it and snack on hot fries!
We choose each book club title with a few things in mind: it must be hot off the press so that no one has had a chance to read it; and preferably Australian – we are very lucky to live in a city with so many talented authors and strong publishers. Choosing Australian novels means we’re supporting our local industry. And we can invite the author to join us!
We hope that our Book Club will encourage young readers to challenge their usual tastes, think critically about books without ‘losing the fun’, and meet other readers. After all, there’s nothing better than a peer recommendation (no matter how hard we grown-up booksellers try).
Numbers are limited, and our aim is that the selected novel will be read before Book Club to avoid the risk of spoilers.
If you have any queries please email firstname.lastname@example.org - we’re grateful for any feedback.
