COMPLEX UNINTENTIONAL INGENUE
The next Young Adultery Book Club pick is Domestic Arrangements > NOVEMBER 24
Domestic Arrangements is the story of fourteen-year-old Tatiana (nicknamed Rusty, for her long red hair), an unintentional ingénue who becomes notorious for filming a nude scene in a major movie. Rusty’s increasing fame—which climaxes with an appearance on the cover of People magazine—dovetails with her increasingly adult personal life, which includes a budding sexual relationship with her boyfriend, an older sister jealous of her looks, and her parents troubled marriage. Ultimately, Rusty must decide if fame—and sex—are all they’re cracked up to be. A stunning example of Norma Klein’s fearless take on the complexities of adolescence, the new edition of this sexually frank novel features a brand new introduction by Norma’s longtime friend, renowned children’s author Judy Blume.
The October 2014 Young Adultery Book Club selection is Domestic Arrangements by Norma Klein, republished by Lizzie Skurnick Books, an imprint of Ig Publishing, that is devoted to reissuing the very best in young adult literature, from the classics of the 1930s and 1940s to the social novels of the 1970s and 1980s.
The Young Adultery Book Club is for adults who read young adult books. We (usually) meet the last Monday of every month at Type Queen West. The book club is free to attend and open to all. All YABC picks are discounted at 20% at Type Queen West.
