The Teen Book Club will discuss The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton

Publisher’s Summary - Foolish love appears to be the Roux family birthright, an ominous forecast for its most recent progeny, Ava Lavender. Ava, in all other ways a normal girl, is born with the wings of a bird. In a quest to understand her peculiar disposition and a growing desire to fit in with her peers, sixteen-year old Ava ventures into the wider world, ill-prepared for what she might discover and naive to the twisted motives of others like the pious Nathaniel Sorrows, who mistakes Ava for an angel and whose obsession with her grows until the night of the summer solstice celebration. That night, the skies open up, rain and feathers fill the air, and Ava s quest and her family’s saga build to a devastating crescendo.
