The Lewiston City Library’s Youth Services department has put together six new book club kits especially for tweens and teens! Each kit contains discussion questions and six copies of the featured title. Book clubs are a great way for teen and tween groups to engage in conversation, increase reading comprehension, and make new friends. These kits are perfect for homeschool groups or friends just wanting to get together to read and talk about a great book!

But when Wade stumbles upon the first clue, he finds himself beset by players willing to kill to take this ultimate prize. The race is on, and if Wade’s going to survive, he’ll have to win—and confront the real world he’s always been so desperate to escape.
