PLG Young Readers Book Group discusses This Was Our Pact
Led by Greenlight bookseller Wynne, our young readers book group in Prospect Lefferts Garden 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 February, the group discusses Ryan Andrews’ astonishing story of magic and adventure This Was Our Pact. It's the night of the annual Autumn Equinox Festival, when the town gathers to float paper lanterns down the river. Legend has it that after drifting out of sight, they'll soar off to the Milky Way and turn into brilliant stars. This year, Ben and his classmates are determined to find out if the legend is true, and to ensure success in their mission, they've made a pact with two simple rules: No one turns for home. No one looks back. But much to Ben’s disappointment, the pact is broken by all except for Ben and Nathaniel, the one kid who just doesn't seem to fit in. Together, Nathaniel and Ben will travel farther than anyone has ever gone, down a winding road full of magic, wonder, and unexpected friendship.
