Children’s Book Club
Tuesday, May 7 from 4-5pm
at the Willmar Public Library
We will be reading the book Merci Suarez Changes Gears by Meg Medina. This book was the 2019 Newbery Medal winner. Merci Suárez knew that sixth grade would be different, but she had no idea just how different. For starters, Merci has never been like the other kids at her private school in Florida, because she and her older brother, Roli, are scholarship students. They don’t have a big house or a fancy boat, and they have to do extra community service to make up for their free tuition. So when bossy Edna Santos sets her sights on the new boy who happens to be Merci’s school-assigned Sunshine Buddy, Merci becomes the target of Edna’s jealousy. Things aren’t going well at home, either: Merci’s grandfather and most trusted ally, Lolo, has been acting strangely lately — forgetting important things, falling from his bike, and getting angry over nothing. No one in her family will tell Merci what’s going on, so she’s left to her own worries, while also feeling all on her own at school.
We will discuss the book and do other activities. Pizza and other snacks will be served. For children in 2nd – 6th grade.
