Written by St. James’s parishioner Carol Hunt’s daughter-in-law Lynda Mullaly Hunt, we will be reading Fish in a Tree for an inter-generational book study this Lent. We'll gather to discuss the book on Sunday, April 2nd at 11am.
This book is not only written by a parishioner’s daughter-in-law, it is set in West Hartford. Sixth-grader Ally Nickerson has been to seven schools in seven years, and the same thing happens at each one: she spends more time in the principal’s office than in class. According to Penguin Press, in this New York Times Best Seller, “Hunt gives readers an emotionally-charged, uplifting novel that will speak to anyone who’s ever thought there was something wrong with them because they didn’t fit in.“
This is a great book, and we are excited to share it with you all. Written for 10 -14 year olds, Fish in a Tree has received many awards including the Schneider Family Book Award.
The book will be on sale Sunday after church for $12. It is also available on Amazon and at Barnes and Noble.
