Welcome back to Logan Square Branch's Cocktails and Conversation! Our next book is Gabriel Tallent's My Absolute Darling.
"Turtle Alveston 'has grown up isolated since the death of her mother, in the thrall of her tortured and charismatic father, Martin. Her social existence is confined to the middle school (where she fends off the interest of anyone, student or teacher, who might penetrate her shell) and to her life with her father. Then Turtle meets Jacob, a high school boy who tells jokes, lives in a big clean house, and looks at Turtle as if she is the sunrise. And for the first time, the larger world begins to come into focus: her life with Martin is neither safe nor sustainable'"-- Provided by publisher.
Books are available at the Humboldt Park Branch.
