Fresh Voices Middle Grade Bookclub

Event date: 
Thursday, August 2, 2018 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm

We'll be discussing Save Me A Seat by Sarah Weeks and Gita Varadarajan.

Joe and Ravi might be from very different places, but they're both stuck in the same place: SCHOOL.

Joe's lived in the same town all his life, and was doing just fine until his best friends moved away and left him on his own.

Ravi's family just moved to America from India, and he's finding it pretty hard to figure out where he fits in.

Joe and Ravi don't think they have anything in common -- but soon enough they have a common enemy (the biggest bully in their class) and a common mission: to take control of their lives over the course of a single crazy week.
