Our Middle Grade Book Club (ages 8-13) will be reading CHIRP by Kate Messner this March!


How It Works:

1. Purchase a copy of the chosen book from the store for your middle grader.

2. Middle grader reads the book!

3. Come to the store on Saturday, March 28th at 3 pm for a book club discussion with fellow readers, facilitated by our Children’s Programming Director, Joy.

Parents are welcome as well, but the focus will be on letting our young readers discuss their opinions of the book and its story. Light refreshments will be provided. Books are available for purchase in the store or online.


More about CHIRP:

From acclaimed author Kate Messner comes the powerful story of a young girl with the courage to make her voice heard, set against the backdrop of a summertime mystery.

When Mia moves to Vermont the summer after seventh grade, she's recovering from the broken arm she got falling off a balance beam. And packed away in the moving boxes under her clothes and gymnastics trophies is a secret she'd rather forget.

Mia's change in scenery brings day camp, new friends, and time with her beloved grandmother. But Gram is convinced someone is trying to destroy her cricket farm. Is it sabotage or is Gram's thinking impaired from the stroke she suffered months ago? Mia and her friends set out to investigate, but can they uncover the truth in time to save Gram's farm? And will that discovery empower Mia to confront the secret she's been hiding--and find the courage she never knew she had?

In a compelling story rich with friendship, science, and summer fun, a girl finds her voice while navigating the joys and challenges of growing up.
