Join us for the last Tween Book Club of the school year. We will be discussing Lauren Wolk's Echo Mountain. This book tells the story of Ellie and her family who after losing everything in the Great Depression move out of town and into the wilderness of Echo Mountain. This historical fiction has made all the best book lists of 2020 and will surely inspire us all to get outside and explore our own local forests and mountains.
