Our Middle Grade Book Club (ages 8-13) is starting again for the Fall! Our next read will be FRONT DESK by Kelly Yang!


How It Works:

1. Purchase a copy of FRONT DESK from the store for your middle grader.

2. Middle grader reads the book!

3. Come to the store on Saturday, September 21 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 FRONT DESK: 

Mia Tang has a lot of secrets.

Number 1: She lives in a motel, not a big house. Every day, while her immigrant parents clean the rooms, ten-year-old Mia manages the front desk of the Calivista Motel and tends to its guests.

Number 2: Her parents hide immigrants. And if the mean motel owner, Mr. Yao, finds out they've been letting them stay in the empty rooms for free, the Tangs will be doomed.

Number 3: She wants to be a writer. But how can she when her mom thinks she should stick to math because English is not her first language?

It will take all of Mia's courage, kindness, and hard work to get through this year. Will she be able to hold on to her job, help the immigrants and guests, escape Mr. Yao, and go for her dreams?
