Middle Grade Book Club: This Is Our Pact
Thursday, September 24, 2020
The Larkspur Library Middle-Grade Book Club is going virtual! Join us this month to discuss This Is Our Pact by Ryan Andrews.
It's the night of the annual Autumn Equinox Festival, when the town gathers to float paper lanterns down the river. Legend has it that after drifting out of sight, they'll soar off to the Milky Way and turn into brilliant stars, but could that actually be true? This year, Ben and his classmates are determined to find out where those lanterns really go, and to ensure success in their mission, they've made a pact with two simple rules: No one turns for home. No one looks back.
The plan is to follow the river on their bikes for as long as it takes to learn the truth, but it isn't long before the pact is broken by all except for Ben, and (much to Ben's disappointment) Nathaniel, the one kid who just doesn't seem to fit in.
Copies of This Is Our Pact were made possible by the support of the Friends of the Larkspur Library.
