Hi, friends! I hope you are all having a lovely reading month so far! We are so excited to announce our next book club pick for May. This one has been on our radar for a long time now, and we are hope we all fall in love with this one, too!
Our May book will be:
DRAGON PEARL by Yoon Ha Lee
The Dates & Breakdown:
May 13th — Page 1 – 64 (Ch. 1 – 7)
May 14th — Page 65 – 124 (Ch. 8 – 14)
May 15th — Page 125 – 183 (Ch. 15 – 22)
May 16th — Page 184 – 242 (Ch. 23 – 28)
May 17th — Page 243 – End (Ch. 29 – 38)
Why we chose this book:
May is Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, and Melanie and I really wanted to focus on an Asian-American, ownvoices author! Yoon Ha Lee’s Dragon Pearl is a middle grade sci fi-fantasy book about a girl who comes from a shape-shifting family and can use what is called “fox-magic.” There’s going to be space adventures but I also think there will be some strong themes about family!
I would like to share part of the book synopsis because it just sounds SO GOOD:
Min’s quest will have her meeting gamblers, pirates, and vengeful ghosts. It will involve deception, lies, and sabotage. She will be forced to use more fox-magic than ever before, and to rely on all of her cleverness and bravery. The outcome may not be what she had hoped, but it has the potential to exceed her wildest dreams.
Don’t forget to join our Goodreads Group!
