Are you a young adult who likes books? Let's talk!
The YA Discussion Group is a virtual book club for young adult readers. We'll be reading a different book every month and discussing it alongside whatever else we've been reading, watching, and thinking about. This is the world's lowest-pressure book club—don't like the book? Don't finish it! Ran out of time? It's that kind of year. Rather tell us about the 20-volume fantasy epic that's been consuming your every waking moment? We want to hear about it!
At our next meeting on Sunday, February 21 at 5:30PM, we'll discuss Want by Cindy Pon. Or, feel free to tell us about anything else you've been reading! We'll send out a Zoom link a little bit ahead of time. For now, happy reading, and we can't wait to see you there!
Sunday, February 21 at 5:30PM:

Set in a near-future Taipei plagued by pollution, a group of teens risk everything to save their city in this thrilling novel from critically acclaimed author Cindy Pon.
Jason Zhou survives in a divided society where the elite use their wealth to buy longer lives. The rich wear special suits, protecting them from the pollution and viruses that plague the city, while those without suffer illness and early deaths. Frustrated by his city’s corruption and still grieving the loss of his mother who died as a result of it, Zhou is determined to change things, no matter the cost.
With the help of his friends, Zhou infiltrates the lives of the wealthy in hopes of destroying the international Jin Corporation from within. Jin Corp not only manufactures the special suits the rich rely on, but they may also be manufacturing the pollution that makes them necessary.
Yet the deeper Zhou delves into this new world of excess and wealth, the more muddled his plans become. And against his better judgment, Zhou finds himself falling for Daiyu, the daughter of Jin Corp’s CEO. Can Zhou save his city without compromising who he is, or destroying his own heart?
