Rave reviews for Pudge, the Colonel, and Alaska Young!

If you have not met them yet, they are characters in John Green's book, Looking for Alaska, the 2006 Printz Award Winner for Young Adult Literature.

MGPL's Read, Eat, And Discuss book club met last night at McDonald's and decided that the book deserves 4-50,000 stars for a review! ********** Our most enthusiastic response yet. Post your comments here to share with the group.

Be sure to get a copy of Twilight by Stephanie Meyer to read for Thursday, March 1, 7 pm, meeting at McDonald's. Call 847-929-5101 or e-mail for more info.

New members are welcome to every meeting. See you there! Happy Reading!
