Shelf Indulgence Book Club: YA (Young Adult) Fiction

2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Valley Cottage Library
New month, new genre! Join Anya via Zoom to indulge in a good book while exploring different genres of literature. 

This month, we'll be discussing the YA page-turner, I’m Not Dying with You Tonight by Kimberly Jones. 


Lena and Campbell aren't friends.Lena has her killer style, her awesome boyfriend, and a plan. She knows she's going to make it big. Campbell, on the other hand, is just trying to keep her head down and get through the year at her new school. When both girls attend the Friday-night football game, what neither expects is for everything to descend into sudden mass chaos. Chaos born from violence and hate. Chaos that unexpectedly throws them together. They aren't friends. They hardly understand the other's point of view. But none of that matters when the city is up in flames, and they only have each other to rely on if they're going to survive the night.

The Zoom link for the discussion will be emailed the day of the discussion to all who register.
