Young Readers Book Group with Jessica discusses Gregor the Overlander

Led (virtually!) by Greenlight co-owner Jessica, our young readers book group is geared toward kids ages 9 to 12, and reads great contemporary and classic chapter books. Parents are welcome (but not required) to attend. For May, the group discusses Gregor the Overlander by best-selling author of The Hunger Games Suzanne Collins. When Gregor falls through a grate in the laundry room of his apartment building, he hurtles into the dark Underland, where spiders, rats, cockroaches coexist uneasily with humans. This world is on the brink of war, and Gregor's arrival is no accident. A prophecy foretells that Gregor has a role to play in the Underland's uncertain future. Gregor wants no part of it—until he realizes it's the only way to solve the mystery of his father's disappearance. Reluctantly, Gregor embarks on a dangerous adventure that will change both him and the Underland forever. This unforgettable novel (recently named one of the best children’s books for quarantine by The New York Times!) is rich in suspense and brimming with adventure.
