October’s Teen Book Club selection is The Bargaining by Carly Anne West.
Penny’s used to being discussed like a problem, a problem her mother has finally passed on to her father. She hasn’t gotten used to her stepmother…especially when she finds out that she’ll have to spend the summer with April in the remote woods of Washington to restore the broken-down old Carver House, which has its own chilling past. The only respite Penny can find away from April’s renovations is in Miller, the young guy who runs the local general store. He’s her only chance at a normal, and enjoyable, summer.
But Miller has his own connection to the Carver House, and it’s one that goes beyond the mysterious tapping Penny hears at her window, the handprints she finds smudging the glass panes, and the visions of children who beckon Penny to follow them into the dark woods. Miller’s past just might threaten to become the terror of Penny’s future…

*Teen Book Club takes place once a month, with a meeting to discuss a selected YA book. Ten spaces will be available for each session, allowing book club members to receive their own personal copy free of charge.
Registration is open monthly, and only applies to that specific session.
Please read the book in its entirety before the scheduled meeting. This program is available for grades 6-12, but YA titles may contain mature themes and language, so parental discretion is advised.*
