This month we are talking about online relationships, so we've chosen Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus by Dusti Bowling as our book club pick.
We'll read about Aven Green, a 13-year old girl who was born without arms. She moves to Arizona - to a new school with people that she doesn't know and that don't know her. She learns how to adjust and tries to make new friends. Oh, and she lives at a theme park. How fun is that?!
It's 288 pages. The audiobook is 5 hours & 30 minutes.
The reading level is grades 3-7 (ages 8-12), but it can easily be read aloud to younger kids.
Dive into Aven's story with us! We think you'll find her pretty incredible and you'll love her just as much as we do.
