Not Your Kids Book Club for Adults, the monthly session for adults interested in what young adults are reading, will discuss "Scythe" by award-winning author Neal Shusterman on Wednesday, March 15, at 1 p.m.
The novel focuses on two teens who must learn the art of killing in a world that has even conquered death. Scythes are the only ones who can end life - and they apprentice the unwilling teens to keep population growth under control. The teens must master the "art" of taking a life, knowing that the consequence of failure could mean losing their own.
The group is led by Scarsdale resident Sheela Chari, whose debut children's novel, VANISHED, was a 2012 APALA Children's Literature honor book, an Edgar Award nominee for best juvenile mystery and was featured on the Today show with Al's Book Club for Kids.
