May 26 Book Club Pick: Fat Kid Rules the World by K.L. Going

Book Club is reading Fat Kid Rules the World by K.L. Going for the next meeting; all are welcome to join the discussion after school in the library on Thursday, May 26. If you need a copy, speak with Ms. Charpentier or visit the Uxbridge Free Public Library.

From Goodreads: "Troy Billings is seventeen, 296 pounds, friendless, utterly miserable, and about to step off a New York subway platform in front of an oncoming train. Until he meets Curt MacCrae, an emaciated, semi-homeless, high school dropout guitar genius, the stuff of which Lower East Side punk rock legends are made. Never mind that Troy's dad thinks Curt's a drug addict and Troy's brother thinks Troy's the biggest (literally) loser in Manhattan. Soon, Curt has recruited Troy as his new drummer, even though Troy can't play the drums. Together, Curt and Troy will change the world of punk, and Troy's own life, forever."
