Welcome to Prince William County Library’s YA Book Club! Here’s how it works: On the first of each month we start an awesome new YA book.

There will be some questions posted, but feel free to come up with your own, write a review, share what you thought of the book – whatever you want. Just be sure that whatever you post is free of profanity, or else it will be removed and sent to cyber limbo for all eternity. You have been warned…. And finally, have fun, share the book club with other YA book lovers, and help our group grow!
