About the Event
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:
The Thing About Lemons by Tasha Harrison
Ori Reynolds has just made the biggest mistake of her life. One that's resulted in:
1) losing all but one of her friends
2) feeling like the World's Most Terrible Person
3) having all her fun summer plans cancelled.
And, as if things couldn't get any worse, she now has no choice but to go on a road trip with her estranged grandad Claude to his home in the French countryside. Talk about life giving you lemons! However, while Ori scoffs at her mum's suggestion to "make lemonade", her sour situation is about to turn significantly sweeter than she could ever have imagined...
