For July, the Online Book Club will read and discuss The Blue Bottle Club by Penelope J. Stokes. I have not read this book or any by this author. It looks like a good summer read about four teenage girls and their dreams and how they do or don’t come true.
Here is the Goodreads summary of The Blue Bottle Club:
Four friends gathered in a cold, dusty attic on Christmas day to make a solemn pact. “Our dreams for the future,” they whispered, placing tiny pieces of paper into a shimmering blue bottle. But that event happened in 1929, and it is decades later when local news reporter Brenna Delaney stumbles upon that bottle . . . and into the most meaningful story of her career. Life has taken those four girls’ dreams of love, fame, and faith on a path fraught with seduction, betrayal, and loss. Little has turned out as expected—and yet every choice, every tear has led each of them to a special place. Brenna’s search will uncover the secrets of that Blue Bottle Club . . . and her own life will never be the same.
Plan to join the discussion on the blog or on Facebook in a closed group on July 25!
