Program Description

Event Details

Are you curious about Young Adult books but have never read one? Or maybe you have already discovered that YA books can be just as entertaining & well-written as adult titles, and they’re often just a little quicker to read. Either way, join us! 

This month's selection is The Downstairs Girl by Stacey Lee.

By day, 17-year-old Jo Kuan works as a lady’s maid for the cruel daughter of one of the wealthiest men in Atlanta. But by night, Jo moonlights as“Miss Sweetie” the author of a newspaper advice column for the genteel Southern lady. When her column becomes wildly popular, Jo uses the power of the pen to address some of society’s ills, but she’s not prepared for the backlash that follows when her column challenges ideas about race and gender. When she finds herself in the crosshairs of Atlanta’s most notorious criminal, Jo must decide whether she, a girl used to living in the shadows, is ready to step into the light.

Books will be available on the Book Group Shelf 3 weeks before the meeting.

The e-audiobook is available on both Hoopla and Libby.
