"The first novel we read is something I should have read in middle school, Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli…"

I’ve recently started a book club. Mutual reading is a good idea. I read a lot on my own, but it’s nice to have someone readily available to gush with as soon as you complete a story. I feel similarly about writing. That pesky writing group has so far evaded me.
