Last fall, I started a book club with a few friends and the studio. We’ve read a few great books and I thought I’d share the latest one, since it makes for a great summer read!
Last month, we read Marlena by Julie Buntin. The novel is about a teenage girl growing up in rural Michigan and her uninhibited neighbor-turned-best-friend, Marlena. It’s a very real, honest portrait of a teenager coping with everything from a broken home, to experiencing drugs and sex for the first time. I don’t want to give too much away, but you’ll breeze through it effortlessly.
If you have any other book recommendations let me know! We’re looking for our next read.
