Join us in the bookshop on Sunday, August 27th at 3:00 for our second Young Adult Book Club meeting where we'll discuss The Gallery of Unfinished Girls by Lauren Karcz.
The novel is the story of Mercedes Moreno, an artist, who is having a difficult time. She's unable to paint, her grandmother is in a coma and she has feelings for her friend, Victoria. Her creative block is broken when a mysterious new neighbor invites her to paint at the Red Mangrove Estate.
At the Estate, Mercedes can create in ways she hasn’t ever before, but she can’t take anything out of the Estate, including her new-found clarity. Mercedes can’t live both lives forever, and ultimately she must choose between this perfect world of art and truth and a much messier reality.
