Parents please join our USFOL Books & Chocolate Parent Book Club on Friday, October 11, 2019 at 8:30 am in the Learning Commons for what promises to be a thought provoking discussion of Dry, a harrowing story of survival from New York Times bestselling author Neal Shusterman and Jarrod Shusterman. The novel unfolds as a California drought escalates to catastrophic proportions and one teen is forced to make life and death decisions for her family.
…The breathtakingly jagged brink of apocalypse is only overshadowed by the sense that [Shusterman’s] dystopias lie just below the surface of readers’ fragile reality, a few thoughtless actions away. He and his debut novelist son have crafted a world of dark thirst and fiery desperation, which, despite the tendrils of hope that thread through the conclusion, feels alarmingly near to our future. - Kirkus starred review
