YA BOOK CLUB - THE GLASS ARROW
Inkwood Books, Monday, March 9 at 7pm
YA BOOK CLUB! This month we're discussing The Glass Arrow by Kristen Simmons. Monday, March 9, 7 pm About the club: Our YA book club is moderated by IW bookseller Erin and Plant High student Grace. We know the kids are busy with school reading, but we like to emphasize the importance (and fun!) of reading for pleasure. We ask that books be purchased from Inkwood to join in, and we provide pizza and drinks for $5. Hope to see you there! About the book: Once there was a time when men and women lived as equals, when girls were valued, and women could belong only to themselves. But that was ten generations ago. Now women are property, to be sold and owned and bred, while a strict census keeps their numbers manageable and under control. The best any girl can hope for is to end up as some man’s forever wife, but most are simply sold and resold until they’re all used up. Only in the wilderness, away from the city, can true freedom be found. Aya has spent her whole life in the mountains, looking out for her family and hiding from the world, until the day the Trackers finally catch her. Stolen from her home, and being groomed for auction, Aya is desperate to escape her fate and return to her family, but her only allies are a loyal wolf she’s raised from a pup and a strange mute boy who may be her best hope for freedom . . . if she can truly trust him. MEET THE AUTHOR! KRISTEN WILL BE AT INKWOOD ON WEDNESDAY, MARCH 18 AT 7 PM. WE KNOW SHE'D LOVE TO MEET SOME OF HER TEEN READERS!

Location: Street: 216 S Armenia Ave City: Tampa, Province: Florida Postal Code: 33609-3310 Country: United States (added from IndieBound)

Kristen Simmons, author of the hugely popular Article 5 series returns with a thrilling, futuristic tale - The Glass Arrow. Wednesday, March 18 7 pm The Glass Arrow was selected for our Inkwood Teen book club this month! About the book: Once there was a time when men and women lived as equals, when girls were valued, and women could belong only to themselves. But that was ten generations ago. Now women are property, to be sold and owned and bred, while a strict census keeps their numbers manageable and under control. The best any girl can hope for is to end up as some man’s forever wife, but most are simply sold and resold until they’re all used up. Only in the wilderness, away from the city, can true freedom be found.

About the Author: Kristen Simmons writes young adult fiction - the kind that's dark and scary but generally involves some kissing. She's the author of Article 5 (2012), Breaking point (2013), and Three (2014), as well as The Glass Arrow (2015), and METALTOWN (2016). Words cannot describe how happy all this makes her.
