March YA Book Club

Our bookseller and resident YA expert Rhiannon will lead discussions around a YA book every month. Join us to share insight and chat about the highs and lows of each month’s pick. Open to young adults and adults alike, but recommended for ages 15 and up!

This month we are reading The Weight of Our Sky by Hanna Alkaf. This historical fiction takes place in 1969 Malaysia during racial conflict between the Malays and Chinese. In the midst of it all Melati Ahmad is struggling with OCD, which for her comes in the form of a djinn who makes her imagine her mother’s death over and over again if she does not comply with compulsive behaviors. When Melati and her mother are separated during the conflict, she will have to overcome her prejudice by teaming up with a Chinese boy named Vincent, and find her mother.
