Mystery Book Club for Teens

June 13 @ 7:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Flyer for Mystery Book Club for Teens: Thursday, June 13, at 7pm we'll discuss Gideon Green in Black and White, by Katie Henry. Pick up a copy of the book in the teen section one month prior to the meeting! Sign up required!

This book club is recommended for teens in grades 8 and up!

We’ll talk about mysteries and thrillers in general, but focus on a particular one each month! This month, we’ll be talking about Gideon Green in Black and White, by Katie Henry:

Gideon’s short-lived run as a locally-famous boy detective ended when middle school started, and everyone else–including his best friend, Lily–moved on while Gideon kept holding on to his trench coat, fedora, and his treasured film noir collection. Now, he’s sixteen and officially retired. That is, until Lily shows up suddenly at Gideon’s door, needing his help.

He might be mad at her for cutting him off with no explanation, but Gideon can’t turn down a case. As a cover, Gideon joins Lily on the school paper. Surprisingly, he finds himself warming up to the welcoming, close-knit staff . . . especially Tess, the cute, witty editor-in-chief.

But as the case gets bigger than Gideon or Lily could have anticipated, Gideon must balance his black-and-white quest for the truth with the full colours of real-life–or risk a permanent fade to black.

You can pick up a copy of the book in the Teen Section up to one month before the meeting. 

Sign up is required! Registration will begin on May 1. Complete the form below to sign up.
