November Teen Book Club

Sunday, November 24, 2019, 1:00 pm

Bailey is making a big, cross-country move to California to live with her dad. While making friends in a new town isn't easy, she'll have a leg up, because she already knows someone: her online chat buddy Alex, another film buff. They've never met in person, but Bailey and Alex get along great. The only problem is that Bailey hasn't told Alex she's moving -- he doesn't even know her real name. So, when Bailey gets the absolute weirdest job working at a museum and starts to have feelings for one of her coworkers, she puts Alex out of her mind.
