Story Bites YA is our discussion book club for readers aged 11-14, with an interest in new YA fiction and who want to share and grow their ideas with others through discussion and thought-provoking activities.
We meet in the emporium on the first Sunday of the month at 4:30pm. Everyone has a copy of the book to read in advance of the session and booking is essential as we have limited spaces. The book is available the month before.
About the book:
Steady For This Lake by Nathanael Lessore
Meet MC Growls, wannabe rapper and star of the show in this hilarious and heartwarming teen debut!
Yeah they call me Growls, I'm like a tiger on the prowl. King of jungles so you better take a bow. King of concrete so you better say it loud!
Shaun (aka MC Growls) is ready to drop his best bars and smash the competition at Raptology. That way, he's convinced Tanisha, his crush, will finally give him a chance. But when a livestream practice goes epically wrong, Growls's dirty laundry is literally exposed. He's finally achieved his dreams of going viral - not in the good way. Now Tanisha won't look at him, he's the joke of the school and there's no way he can show his face at the competition. Will he ever catch a break?Then a new girl on the block appears who might be just the friend Growls needs. Especially when she points out that Raptology could be the answer to his problems after all. . .
