Our Middle Grade Book Club (ages 8-13) will be reading ALLIES by Alan Gratz this February!


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, February 15th 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 ALLIES:

Alan Gratz, bestselling author of Refugee, weaves a stunning array of voices and stories into an epic tale of teamwork in the face of tyranny -- and how just one day can change the world.

June 6, 1944: The Nazis are terrorizing Europe, on their evil quest to conquer the world. The only way to stop them? The biggest, most top-secret operation ever, with the Allied nations coming together to storm German-occupied France.

Welcome to D-Day.

Dee, a young U.S. soldier, is on a boat racing toward the French coast. And Dee -- along with his brothers-in-arms -- is terrified. He feels the weight of World War II on his shoulders.

But Dee is not alone. Behind enemy lines in France, a girl named Samira works as a spy, trying to sabotage the German army. Meanwhile, paratrooper James leaps from his plane to join a daring midnight raid. And in the thick of battle, Henry, a medic, searches for lives to save.

In a breathtaking race against time, they all must fight to complete their high-stakes missions. But with betrayals and deadly risks at every turn, can the Allies do what it takes to win?
