Starting January 2019, I’m running a book club for writers of middle grade and young adult fiction. If you’re a MG or YA writer from Winnipeg or surrounding area, and are interested in learning more, please contact me. (Note: There’s a *bit* more to this group than just reading a novel and having a discussion.)
I will be writing a review of the book we read each month, but thought in case you’d like to read along with us, that I will announce the book ahead of time.
Our January book is The Boundless by Kenneth Oppel:
Will Everett has always wished for an adventure. Little does he know that his adventure starts the moment he boards the Boundless. There is a murder, and now Will must protect a key that can unlock the train’s hidden treasures. Villians are fast on his heels and strange creatures are lurking outside the windows as the Boundless hurtles across the country. Together with Maren, a gifted escape artist, and Mr. Dorian, a circus ringmaster with amazing abilities, Will must save the Boundless before someone else winds up dead.
His adventure may have begun without him knowing . . . but how it ends is up to Will.
