Here’s what Brave Writers (ages 9-12) will be reading in October’s online Arrow Book Club:
Merci Suárez Changes Gears by Meg Medina
This novel is the 2019 Newbery winner. It’s a heartwarming (and sometimes heart wrenching) coming-of-age story with a delightfully relatable protagonist—Merci! As she navigates 6th grade, Merci struggles with the developmental and emotional changes that come with growing up. Along with her typical tween-concerns, she must also come to understand and accept the changes brought to her tight-knit family when the effects of Alzheimer’s disease alter her beloved grandfather. This is a story about growing up, growing old, and growing as a family.
