93. Book Reading & Signing: “Teenie” by Christopher Grant
Christopher Grant, talented new author of Teenie will be at Busboys and Poets on Wednesday, July 20th reading and signing his debut novel. This stunning literary production is a warmly told story about friends, family, and finding oneself.
Grant tells a tale of high school freshman Martine (Teenie for short), a good student with a bright future ahead of her. She’s desperate to be accepted into a prestigious study abroad program in Spain so that she can see what life is like beyond the streets of Brooklyn. She wouldn’t mind escaping from her strict (though lovable) parents for awhile either.
But when the captain of the basketball team starts to pay attention to her after she’s pined away for him for months and Cherise, her best friend, meets a guy online, Teenie’s mind is on anything but her schoolwork. Can Teenie get her act together in time to save her friendship with Cherise, save her grade point average so that she can study in Spain, and save herself from a potentially dangerous relationship?
Please join us at 6:30 p.m. next Wednesday at Busboys and Poets to find out!
