Led by Greenlight bookseller Wynne, our young readers book group in Prospect Lefferts Gardens is geared toward kids ages 9 to 12, and reads great contemporary and classic chapter books. Parents are welcome (but not required) to attend, and pizza is served. For January, the group discusses There’s a Boy in the Girl’s Bathroom by Louis Sachar. Bradley Chalkers, a fifth grader at the Red Hill School, has trouble getting along with his classmates until he meets Carla, a new school counselor. She not only listens to his wacky stories, but encourages him to use his powerful imagination. But just when Bradley’s social world begins to broaden, the school board decides to let Carla go. What will happen to Bradley now?
