29 Aug 2017. While no one is happy to see the summer holidays come to end, one benefit of the end of summer is that the TIC book club meets again!  Before the summer holidays, we had chosen a novel with more pages than our typical choices since we would have the whole summer to savor the book. However, this book turned out to be far more intriguing and suspenseful than expected, such that many of us couldn’t put it down.

I had planned to have the book as my survival kit for the long flight back to the US for a summer visit; however, the short chapters left me always thinking, after this chapter, I’ll set the book down…no wait, one more chapter…and so on. The book for my flight ended up as my pre-flight book. The other TIC members agreed, the story draws you in and keeps you hoping for the survival the characters.

In a story that raises the question of when to stand up against bullies, of when to obey for the sake of safety and when to risk, we were reminded, “Open your eyes and see what you can with them before they close forever” (pg 48–49).

We hope you will join us for our next TIC book club meeting on 17 October 2017.
