This month, we are reading The Extremely Inconvenient Adventures of Bronte Mettlestone by Jaclyn Moriarity, a buoyantly high-spirited fantasy adventure and recommended by book club member Ree:

“Want to be a Hero but feel you’re just a normal person? Ever wonder what it’s like to be extraordinary? Want to read about an unlikely champion? Then read this book! It’s written just for you. Bronte Mettlestone sets out at a young age to deliver gifts to relatives, obeying a request made by her parents. Along the way, life happens to Bronte, as it happens to all of us. Strangers, human or not, become friends; criminals are freed; babies are saved; medals are awarded, and much more! Each part of Bronte’s multiple undertakings is interconnected, although she doesn’t realize it. Each gift received, each lesson learned, each puzzle solved, comes together neatly in the end.”
