“Don’t judge a book by it’s cover,” applies very literally to Scott Westerfield’s futuristic novel, “Uglies”. It has surprising depth, which led to a pretty interesting book club conversation about beauty, friendship, and even Darwinism.
We apologize for the delay between episodes, but we’re back with Marie Lu’s “The Young Elites”. This was a difficult read for us but Lu’s antihero epic is still one worth exploring. We delve into themes such as betrayal, mistrust, and acceptance, and how a person’s environment can impact their reaction to those themes.
