Book Bunch Reads Touch Blue for September


Touch Blue by Cynthia Lord is the book of choice for the September 18th gathering of Book Bunch.  Bunchers in grades 3-5 will meet at 4:00 for a book discussion and quick activity.  Copies of Touch Blue are available for check-out in the lower level Young Readers' Room.  New faces are always welcome!

About the Book 
An exquisite second novel from the Newbery Honor author of RULES! TOUCH BLUE, sure as certain, will touch your heart. 

The state of Maine plans to shut down her island's schoolhouse, which would force Tess's family to move to the mainland--and Tess to leave the only home she has ever known. Fortunately, the islanders have a plan too: increase the numbers of students by having several families take in foster children. So now Tess and her family are taking a chance on Aaron, a thirteen-year-old trumpet player who has been bounced from home to home. And Tess needs a plan of her own--and all the luck she can muster. Will Tess's wish come true or will her luck run out?

Newbery Honor author Cynthia Lord offers a warm-hearted, humorous, and thoughtful look at what it means to belong--and how lucky we feel when we do. Touch Blue, sure as certain, will touch your heart.
