Our next book group discussion will be about Chris Lynch's Inexcusable.
Overview from the publisher:
"I am a good guy.
Keir Sarafian may not know much,
but he knows himself. And the one thing he knows about himself is that
he is a good guy. A guy who's a devoted son and brother, a loyal friend,
and a reliable teammate. And maybe most important of all, a guy who
understands that when a girl says no, she means it. But that is not what
Gigi Boudakian, childhood friend and Keir's lifelong love, says he is.
What Gigi says he is seems impossible to Keir.... It is something
inexcusable -- the worst thing he can imagine, the very opposite of
everything he wants to be.
As Keir recalls the events
leading up to his fateful night with Gigi, he realizes that the way
things look are definitely not the way they really are -- and that it
may be all too easy for a good guy to do something terribly wrong.
Chris Lynch has written a
no-holds-barred story about truth, lies, and responsibility -- a story
that every good guy needs to hear" (Simon & Schuster).Join us in reading this discussion provoking title. Copies available for checkout. Book Group will meet to discuss on Dec. 11 at lunch in the library.
