The Unwanteds by Lisa McMann
The Unwanteds has the feel of Harry Potter, Percy Jackson and The Hunger Games all rolled into one with it's own spin on the Dystopian/Magic genre(s). The Society of Quill prides itself on perfection and those who display any type of creativity are deemed weak and "unwanted." The penalty: Death. Alex Stowe has been declared Unwanted and is separated not only from his parents but also his twin brother, Aaron. But when he is taken to "The Death Farm" he finds out that it is far from what he expected...

While it is not required, we encourage you to buy the book club picks with us. Shop local!
