Tween Book Group Reads Throwing Like a Girl for August 11th


Throwing Like a Girl by Weezie Kerr Mackey is the August selection for Page Turners, a book group for tweens in grades 6-8.  Join the group on Thursday, August 11th @ 2:30PM for a snack, discussion and short activity.

Copies of the book are available in both the Teen Area and  Young Readers' Room.

About the Book
No one asks Ella how she feels about moving halfway across the country in the middle of her sophomore year. But she ends up in Texas anyway, without plans for the weekend or friends to guide her through the alien campus of her new private school. So she decides to try out for the softball team — and she makes it! Now if only she knew how to throw, hit, and field the ball. “This is the part you can’t read in a book. You just have to do it.” Ella has a lot to learn — on and off the field.

Softball changes Ella’s life, for better and for worse. She discovers a confidence she never knew she had and makes new friends — and enemies. When Ella falls for her snotty teammate’s gorgeous brother, suddenly she isn’t just fielding balls, she’s also dodging evil glares from girls in class and on the team.

When life throws you a curve ball — learn how to hit it! 

If Ella’s going to survive this year, she’ll have to set some ground rules and learn to stand up for herself — in the game and in her life.

About the Book
Growing up on idyllic St. Thomas in the early 1800s, Rachel dreams of life in faraway Paris. Rachel’s mother, a pillar of their small refugee community of Jews who escaped the Inquisition, has never forgiven her daughter for being a difficult girl who refuses to live by the rules. Growing up, Rachel’s salvation is their maid Adelle’s belief in her strengths, and her deep, life-long friendship with Jestine, Adelle’s daughter. But Rachel’s life is not her own. She is married off to a widower with three children to save her father’s business. When her husband dies suddenly and his handsome, much younger nephew, Frédérick, arrives from France to settle the estate, Rachel seizes her own life story, beginning a defiant, passionate love affair that sparks a scandal that affects all of her family, including her favorite son, who will become one of the greatest artists of France.
