Mother Daughter Book Club June 2017

On June 19 we will meet in the Book Club Room from 6:30-7:30 p.m. to discuss The Pet War by Allan Woodrow. Registration is required either online, in person, or by calling (317) 844-3363. A copy of the book will be available at the Children's Desk to registered pairs. 

The Pet War is a hilarious story about the timeless battles of dog vs. cat, brother vs. sister, know-it-all vs. know-nothing. Eleven-year-old Otto wants a dog. His twelve-year-old perfect sister, Lexi, wants a cat. Their mother, who works very long hours as a nurse, wants neither. Pets are expensive, so who's going to pay for everything? And what happens to the pet when the siblings are at their dad's for the weekend?

Otto has an idea. What if he got a job and earned enough money to pay for the dog? Then Lexi has to open her big mouth. She proposes that whichever sibling can raise enough money first will decide which pet they get. Oddly enough, their mom and dad agree. Who will win?
