Third Thursday Book Discussion - My Absolute Darling by Gabriel Tallent

Turtle Alveston wanders the California wilderness by herself, often wandering for miles. Although she ranges further than many people ever do, her personal world is tiny. She interacts with her controlling, tortured father and her small middle school, but only until a boy named Jacob expands her world more than she could ever imagine. Using the survival skills her father has taught her, Turtle fights for her very existence as she realizes that her life with Jacob is not safe or sustainable.  A breathtaking story of survival following the journey of a girl intent on becoming herself, this one is sure to keep you turning the pages. Please come join us in for discussion!  Copies of the book are available at the library. Preregistration required.
