Save Me by Lisa Scottoline

New York Times bestselling author Lisa Scottoline’s Save Me will touch the heart of every woman, as its heroine, the unforgettable Rose McKenna, makes a split-second decision that alters the course of her life—and makes you wonder what you would do in her shoes.

Nobody could have foreseen what would happen the day that Rose McKenna volunteers as a lunch mom in the cafeteria of her daughter’s elementary school.  Rose does it to keep a discreet eye on her third-grader, Melly, a sweet, if shy, child who was born with a facial birthmark that has become her own personal bull’s-eye.  Melly has been targeted by the mean girl at their new school and gets bullied every day, placing Rose in a no-win position familiar to parents everywhere.  Do we step in to protect our children when they need us, or does that make things worse?

When the bully starts to tease Melly yet again. Rose is about to leap into action—but right then, the unthinkable happens.  Rose finds herself in a nightmare, faced with an emergency decision that no mother should ever have to make.  What she decides in that split second derails Rose’s life and jeopardizes everyone she holds dear, until she takes matters into her own hands and lays her life on the line to save her child, her family, her marriage—and herself.

    I stopped over at Lady Tea last night to scope it out. Seems like a nice place to try out. The beverages are conducive for a hot summer day and aren't limited to just bubble tea.

    Is it near Midori? I think I've seen it. Is that proposed new place? If the weather is nice there is actually a nice outdoor patio next to the Rutgers Barnes and Noble in New Brunswick.

    I think I've been there, Lady Tea. It's a bubble tea place that's pretty quiet. It might be able to seat 6-8ish people at a big table, but not totally sure.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
