Volusia Reads Online Book Club

Volusia County Public Library has partnered with PBC Guru and Freading to create a virtual book club for patrons and the community.

The book for June - July is Before You Found Me by Brooke Beyfuss.

 How far would you go to save a child who isn't even yours? Before You Found Me explores the unlikely bond that develops between two abuse survivors and takes a deep dive into personal sacrifice, morality, and the healing powers of family--both blood and found--from the author of After We Were Stolen.

It's always available for download from Freading.
