What we're about

Are you comfortably out of your teens (perhaps by a decade or more) but still love to read YA?
Do you want to meet and discuss YA books with other people like you?

Join us for the new combined YA@Heart / Young at Heart book group. We've merged a local YA book club with the Young Adult for Adults Meetup.

We will typically meet to discuss a YA book on the 2nd Wednesday of every month.

We look forward to sharing our inner teenagers with you.

February: Love Life and the List by Kasie West

Central Market Cafe (UPSTAIRS of NORTH Lamar Location - 38th/Lamar)

Love Life and the List by Kasie West What do you do when you’ve fallen for your best friend? Funny and romantic, this effervescent story about family, friendship, and finding yourself is perfect for fans of Sarah Dessen and Jenny Han. Seventeen-year-old Abby Turner’s summer isn’t going the way she’d planned. She has a not-so-secret but definitely unrequited crush on her best friend, Cooper. She hasn’t been able to manage her mother’s growing issues with anxiety. And now she’s been rejected from an art show because her work “has no heart.” So when she gets another opportunity to show her paintings, Abby isn’t going to take any chances. Which is where the list comes in. Abby gives herself one month to do ten things, ranging from face a fear (#3) to learn a stranger’s story (#5) to fall in love (#8). She knows that if she can complete the list, she’ll become the kind of artist she’s always dreamed of being. But as the deadline approaches, Abby realizes that getting through the list isn’t as straightforward as it seems . . . and that maybe—just maybe—she can’t change her art if she isn’t first willing to change herself. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Meetup details: Arrive early to grab a snack or a drink and visit with the group.
