Fort Greene Young Readers Book Group discusses Hurricane Child
Led by Greenlight bookseller Sarah, our young readers book group in Fort Greene is geared toward kids ages 9 to 12, and reads great contemporary and classic chapter books. Parents are welcome (but not required) to attend, and pizza is served. For January, the group discusses Kacen Callender’s award-winning debut novel, Hurricane Child. Being born during a hurricane is unlucky, and 12-year-old Caroline has had her share of bad luck lately. But when a new student named Kalinda arrives, Caroline's luck begins to turn around. Now, Caroline must find the strength to confront her feelings for Kalinda, brave the spirit stalking her through the islands, and face the reason her mother abandoned her. Together, Caroline and Kalinda must set out in a hurricane to find Caroline's missing mother—before Caroline loses her forever. Prepare to be swept up by this exquisite novel that reminds us that grief and love can open the world in mystical ways.
