What is Book Club?
MVHS Book Club’s purpose is to expand members' personal literary experiences by reading and discussing works chosen by the students in a friendly and open atmosphere. The MVHS Book Club will provide a safe and welcoming environment for teens to develop a lifelong interest in and appreciation for reading and learning.
Please join us in the library at lunch on October 6, 2022 to discuss The Inheritance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes.
Avery Grambs has a plan for a better future: survive high school, win a scholarship, and get out. But her fortunes change in an instant when billionaire Tobias Hawthorne dies and leaves Avery virtually his entire fortune. The catch? Avery has no idea why--or even who Tobias Hawthorne is. To receive her inheritance, Avery must move into sprawling, secret passage-filled Hawthorne House, where every room bears the old man's touch--and his love of puzzles, riddles, and codes.
Unfortunately for Avery, Hawthorne House is also occupied by the family that Tobias Hawthorne just dispossessed. This includes the four Hawthorne grandsons: dangerous, magnetic, brilliant boys who grew up with every expectation that one day, they would inherit billions. Heir apparent Grayson Hawthorne is convinced that Avery must be a con-woman, and he's determined to take her down. His brother, Jameson, views her as their grandfather's last hurrah: a twisted riddle, a puzzle to be solved. Caught in a world of wealth and privilege, with danger around every turn, Avery will have to play the game herself just to survive.
Every Thursday in the library at lunch, join us for a silent reading party! A chance to put our devices away and read independently, but together.
