*Update: Since I didn’t quite manage to get this one read in February, but I know some others did, I’m extending it to be our March Book Club Selection. Please use this extra time to to join in!
Our selection for February, The Lonely Hearts Club by Elizabeth Eulberg is the last of your choices from the poll we had back in September to help us pick some great reads. We felt this one was fitting for this month, so please join us in reading and discussing The Lonely Hearts Club!
Here’s a bit about the book from Amazon:
After a devastating betrayal by the boy she thought she was destined to be with forever, Penny Bloom swears off guys and quietly starts the Lonely Hearts Club. To her surprise, many of her girlfriends are also sick of high-school guys and want to join. The club grows and becomes an influential social force as members meet every Saturday night, go to dances together, and support one another in their academic and extracurricular pursuits. But conflict arises when the school administration fears the group is getting too powerful and “making the boys feel bad,” and Penny finds herself torn between her no-boy pledge and the courteous advances of one of the nicest guys she knows.
This one really suits my mood for this month, I look forward to discussing it with you at the end of February!
