Breakfast with a Book meets at Farm Grounds the first Thursday of each month.
December's book is We Come Apart. Authors Brian Conaghan and Sarah Crossan have joined forces to tell the story of Nicu and Jess, two troubled teens whose paths cross in the unlikeliest of places. Nicu has emigrated from Romania and is struggling to find his place in his new home. Meanwhile, Jess's home life is overshadowed by violence. When Nicu and Jess meet, what starts out as friendship grows into romance as the two bond over their painful pasts and hopeful futures. But will they be able to save each other, let alone themselves? This illuminating story told in dual points of view through vibrant verse will stay with readers long after they've turned the last page.
