We meet the fourth Thursday of each month at Barriques - Atwood (2166 Atwood Ave). You can pick up books at Hawthorne Library.
~This is How It Always Is by Laurie Frankel~
This is how a family keeps a secret and how that secret ends up keeping them.
This is how a family lives happily ever after until happily ever after becomes complicated.
This is how children change and then change the world.
This is Claude. Hes five years old, the youngest of five brothers, and loves peanut butter sandwiches. He also loves wearing a dress, and dreams of being a princess.
When he grows up, Claude says, he wants to be a girl.
Rosie and Penn want Claude to be whoever Claude wants to be. Theyre just not sure theyre ready to share that with the world. Soon the entire family is keeping Claudes secret. Until one day it explodes. (from the publisher)
