Live via Zoom:

Young Readers Book Group with Jackie
Discussing I Can Make This Promise by Christine Day

Led (virtually!) by Greenlight bookseller Jackie, our Young Readers Book Group meets quarterly and is geared toward kids ages 9 to 12, reading and discussing great contemporary and classic chapter books. Parents are welcome (but not required) to attend. For November, the group discusses Christine Day’s I Can Make This Promise. All her life, Edie has known that her mom was adopted by a white couple. So, no matter how curious she might be about her Native American heritage, Edie is sure her family doesn’t have any answers—until the day when she and her friends discover a box hidden in the attic—a box full of letters signed “Love, Edith,” and photos of a woman who looks just like her. In her debut middle-grade novel inspired by her family’s history, Day (Upper Skagit) tells the story of a girl who uncovers her family’s secrets and finds her own Native American identity.

In her debut middle grade novel—inspired by her family’s history—Christine Day tells the story of a girl who uncovers her family’s secrets—and finds her own Native American identity. 

All her life, Edie has known that her mom was adopted by a white couple. So, no matter how curious she might be about her Native American heritage, Edie is sure her family doesn’t have any answers. 

Until the day when she and her friends discover a box hidden in the attic—a box full of letters signed “Love, Edith,” and photos of a woman who looks just like her. 

Suddenly, Edie has a flurry of new questions about this woman who shares her name. Could she belong to the Native family that Edie never knew about? But if her mom and dad have kept this secret from her all her life, how can she trust them to tell her the truth now?
