East Valley Book Club June Meetup

Well, I am so sorry that I missed the meeting for April . . . it looks like we had a LOT of people come, and it sounds like the discussion was fantastic!

For May, we have chosen "The Lock Artist" by Steve Hamilton.  Here is what Amazon has to say:

Marked by tragedy, traumatized at the age of eight, Michael, now eighteen, is no ordinary young man. Besides not uttering a single word in ten years, he discovers the one thing he can somehow do better than anyone else. Whether it's a locked door without a key, a padlock with no combination, or even an eight-hundred pound safe ... he can open them all.  It's an unforgivable talent. A talent that will make young Michael a hot commodity with the wrong people and, whether he likes it or not, push him ever close to a life of crime. Until he finally sees his chance to escape, and with one desperate gamble risks everything to come back home to the only person he ever loved, and to unlock the secret that has kept him silent for so long.


Can't wait to get into this!

Hope to see you there!

    Thank you all. Jade had a blast! He asked about what the next book was. I think he caught the reading bug. I thank all of you for giving great insight to the book.

    I thought the book for May was The Killer Angels?? Is the Lock Artist the June selection??? Stephanie

    I'm confused. I have bought the book for the May meeting which you said was The Killer Angels. Is The Lock Artist the book to read for the June meeting?
