The Scorpio Races, by Maggie Stiefvater

Teen Book Club

Sunday, May 26, 2019, 3:00 pm

Every fall is the same on the island of Thisby. The water horses emerge from the depths, and the most lethal horse race known to mankind is run. Returning champion Sean Kendrick is a taciturn fellow, and shows no fear in the face of the wild creatures. Puck Connolly is in dire straights— with her parents dead and her older brother about to leave the family for the mainland, she knows she has no choice but to race. Can she, the first girl ever to enter, not only survive the deadly contest, but win? Join us on Sunday for some light snacks and discussion of the book!
