Great Escape Book Club 2017

 I'm watching my neighbor, Nicky, walk his dog.  Last year he was a somewhat chubby fifth grader whom I met at a pen pal club run by his school. During the snowy months, this sixth grader's become a taller youth, almost a man.  (Now if he could just put down that phone while he walks...) Transformation is all around the neighborhood this week. It's almost spring and time for Great Escape planning to kick into high gear (along with flowers.  I need green things to grow!)

Neighborhood, community and transformation are some of the themes of our pick for this year's book - the fourth Great Escape book club selection.  Oh and humor, too! This is our first fiction book.
A Man Called Ove by Fredrick Backman
I don't want to give away the plot so I'll just say that on Goodreads, its average rating is 4.35/5 and over 177,000 people have rated it.  We think you will love it - and it's an 'easy read' too!  Enjoy, and watch for registration for the 2017 Great Escape to open soon!

  1. I will add it to my long list of Must Reads that I have planned once I no longer have to read textbooks for school. :) May you enjoy a beautiful spring and a wonderful week!
