Our next book was chosen by BRC book group and the BOC book group on International Women’s Day.  We will be reading I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai with Christine Lamb.

As a young girl, Malala Yousafzai defied the Taliban in Pakistan and demanded that girls be allowed to receive an education. She was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman in 2012, but survived and went on to receive the Nobel Peace Prize.

The BRC book group will be meeting on Wednesday 26th April from 12-1pm in St. Michaels F3. And the BOC book group will meet on Thursday 27th April from 12-1pm (room to be confirmed).

If you can’t attend the meeting please let us know what you think of the book here.

Flawed by Cecelia Ahern

The BRC book group will be discussing Cecelia Ahern’s young adult dystopian novel, Flawed.  Ahern is best known for the very successful book and film, P.S. I love you, but this is her first book for young adults.

Flawed is set in a society where perfection is valued above humanity. Good-girl Celestine has always agreed with the system, but following an act of kindness towards one of the “Flawed” is herself excluded and soon she is fighting for her own survival. We will be meeting on Wednesday 8th March from 12-1pm in St Michael’s F3.  Looking forward to hearing what you all think, but if you can’t make the meeting then please let us know what you think of the book.
