Book club to discuss teen fiction novel

PARIS —  Paris Public Library’s Novel Idea/Multi-Age Book Club will discuss the junior fiction selection, “Waiting for Normal” by Leslie Connor, a realistic fiction novel, at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 19.

Twelve-year-old Addie tries to cope with her mother’s erratic behavior and being separated from her beloved stepfather and half-sisters when she and her mother go to live in a small trailer by the railroad tracks on the outskirts of Schenectady, New York. Addie, like so many children her age, takes on more responsibility than a child her age would be expected to, and … ever so gracefully.

New members are welcome.
