Lake County Public Library Teen Programs in November 2014

lake-county-public-libraryOnline Young Adult Book Discussion
November 1 to 30 Teens are invited to join in this online book discussion available at any time of day from anywhere for any teen of: What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen.

After a scandal involving her mother and a famous college basketball coach rocked her family and her hometown, McClean decided to live with her dad. His job as a restaurant consultant requires they move often, and at each new place she carefully selects who she'll be – Eliza, Beth, or some other new name. It's easier this way for McClean, who is reluctant to form any true attachments. Then at their latest stop, she does something she's not done in a long while...reveal her real name. But who is this McClean, and is she ready to forgive her mother, fall for the boy next door, and finally stick around?

To join, send an email to reenreads@lcplin.org.
