This group for teens and adults alike, who enjoy a good YA read, meets monthly to discuss our chosen book. This month we are reading Susin Nielsen’s “We Are All Made of Molecules.”
Stewart, 13: Socially clueless genius.
Ashley, 14: Popular with everyone but her teachers
Ashley’s and Stewart’s worlds collide when Stewart and his dad move in with Ashley and her mom. The Brady Bunch it isn’t. Stewart is trying to be 89.9 percent happy about it–he’s always wanted a sister. But Ashley is 110 percent horrified. She already has to hide the real reason her dad moved out; “Spewart”could further threaten her position at the top of the social ladder.
They’re complete opposites, but they have one thing in common: they—like everyone else—are made of molecules.
In this hilarious and deeply moving story, award-winning author Susin Nielsen has created two narrators who will steal your heart and make you laugh out loud.
