Not your average book club!

Advance Reading Copies are books that haven’t even been published yet. At the Teen Advance Readers’ club, you’ll have the chance to read and review brand new teen books that haven’t even hit the shelves!

You’ll get an exclusive sneak peek at unpublished teen fiction, then choose a book to take home and review. At the next meeting, we’ll discuss the books, with snacks of course, and do it all over again!

Don’t miss your chance to READ IT FIRST!
