Page Turner Book Club (Remote)

Join us on March 18th at 6:30PM for Page Turner Book Club. We will discuss Girl A by Abigail Dean. She thought she had escaped her past. But there are some things you can’t outrun. Lex Gracie doesn’t want to think about her family. She doesn’t want to think about growing up in her parents’ House of Horrors. And she doesn’t want to think about her identity as Girl A: the girl who escaped, the eldest sister who freed her older brother and four younger siblings.
