Welcome to one of the best Inland Empire Book Clubs around! Over the past five years we've read many great books, eaten wonderful foods and tasted delicious wine. We've raised money for kids, animals, and the marginalized. If you're looking to make new friends and expand your mind, this is the place to be.
We usually meet at a member's house because it's less costly than going out. Your ticket for admission to each book club is having read the book and bring a bottle of vino to share. The hostess provides dinner, so come hungry.
Two Important Things
• We welcome ladies from Claremont, La Verne, Upland, Pomona, Montclair, Rancho Cucamonga, Ontario, W. Covina, Covina, Diamond Bar, and Chino.
• You must have a profile photo to join our group. If you start with one, then take it down, you will be removed from the group. If you join our group and then never attend a book club, you will be removed from the group.
Thanks Haniah for hosting!
Jacob Hunt is a teen with Asperger’s syndrome. He’s hopeless at reading social cues or expressing himself well to others, though he is brilliant in many ways. He has a special focus on one subject—forensic analysis. A police scanner in his room clues him in to crime scenes, and he’s always showing up and telling the cops what to do. And he’s usually right.
But when Jacob’s small hometown is rocked by a terrible murder, law enforcement comes to him. Jacob’s behaviors are hallmark Asperger’s, but they look a lot like guilt to the local police. Suddenly the Hunt family, who only want to fit in, are thrust directly in the spotlight. For Jacob’s mother, it’s a brutal reminder of the intolerance and misunderstanding that always threaten her family. For his brother, it’s another indication why nothing is normal because of Jacob.
And for the frightened small town, the soul-searing question looms: Did Jacob commit murder?
