  • Mocha & More: The Selection (grades 6-12)
    Friday, November 14, 2014 - 7:00pm

    Mocha & More Book Discussion: The Selection by Kiera Cass
    In a dystopian future, 35 young women are randomly selected to compete in the Selection, a reality TV competition to win the heart of Prince Maxon. In this caste-driven society, people are ranked from One (royalty) to Eight (untouchables), and poverty, famine, and ignorance are the fate of those ranked Six and below. America Singer, a Five, is one of the contestants but has no desire to become queen because she’s in love with Aspen, the Six next door. Drinks are on us and the first 7 registered teens to check in at the Youth Services desk receive a free copy of the title.
    Heads Up: This book has a suggested reading audience of 7-12 grade.
