I have not finished the book quite yet but I have to say I had no idea those times were like that in THIS country! My eyes were definitely opened! I am just past the part where Henry’s Dad falls sick. Just have been so busy! I hope to finish it either tonight or tomorrow! Can’t wait to hear what May’s selection is!
Do you think that both Henry and Keiko felt like they had no control over anything and that is why they just let each other go so easily?

Congratulations Kiana.  I loved your comments.  You can still comment on the book even though the giveaway is now closed.  I’d love to hear what you thought.

Without further ado, Here is May’s Book Club Selection:



by Scott Westerfeld

And here’s the synopsis {so if you don’t want to know what the book is about skip the next paragraph}

Tally Youngblood lives in a futuristic society that makes its citizens believe that they are ugly until age 16 when they’ll undergo an operation that will change them into pleasure-seeking “pretties.” Anticipating this happy transformation, Tally meets Shay, another female ugly, who shares her enjoyment of hover boarding and risky pranks. But Shay also disdains the false values and programmed conformity of the society and urges Tally to defect with her to the Smoke, a distant settlement of simple-living conscientious objectors. Tally declines, yet when Shay is found missing by the authorities, Tally is coerced by the cruel Dr. Cable to find her and her compatriots–or remain forever “ugly.” Tally’s adventuresome spirit helps her locate Shay and the Smoke. It also attracts the eye of David, the aptly named youthful rebel leader to whose attentions Tally warms. However, she knows she is living a lie, for she is a spy who wears an eye-activated locator pendant that threatens to blow the rebels’ cover.

This book does start out a little slow {at least for me it did}  But once you get past the first chapter you will absolutely LOVE it!!  This book is one of my true favorites.  It’s one I always go to first when I’m asked for recommendations.  I’m sure you will enjoy reading it and I cannot wait to hear your thoughts at our meeting!!

Our fabulous sponsor for May is:


Ginger Snaps does vinyl labels, décor and more.  She has an amazing blog and an even more amazing Etsy shop.  We will be seeing more of her throughout the month and of course she will be providing the giveaway for our meeting {so excited she has some GREAT stuff} Of course you guys know I wouldn’t offer up anything that I didn’t think was truly awesome , so go check her out.  You won’t be disappointed.

And now it’s time to start reading.  On your mark, get set, GO!!
