YA Book Club: May Novel
When I was growing up, my mom used to tell me that saying never was the kiss of death. There’s something magical about the word because as soon as you say it, plans are in the works for you to break that statement.
Me, age 12: “I’ll never eat brussels sprouts.”
Me, now: “Balsamic-roasted brussels sprouts with almonds? I could eat a pound.”
Me, age 20: “I’ll never go skydiving.”
Me , age 21: “Now, do I jump out of the plane or do you push us?”
Me, last year: “We’ll never read a sequel for book club. That’s too exclusive.”
Me, today: “Guys, your pick for the May book is Insurgent by Veronica Roth.”
Could you hear that okay through all the crunching and chewing? I’m sorry but I’m in the middle of eating my words as I type. Mmm…
