Book Club: THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS by M.R. Carey

Book Club: THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS by M.R. Carey

Girls in Capes Book Club is celebrating Halloween with a sci-fi horror:

Melanie is a very special girl. Dr Caldwell calls her “our little genius.”

Every morning, Melanie waits in her cell to be collected for class. When they come for her, Sergeant keeps his gun pointing at her while two of his people strap her into the wheelchair. She thinks they don’t like her. She jokes that she won’t bite, but they don’t laugh.

Melanie loves school. She loves learning about spelling and sums and the world outside the classroom and the children’s cells. She tells her favorite teacher all the things she’ll do when she grows up. Melanie doesn’t know why this makes Miss Justineau look sad.

You can find the full Girls in Capes review here!

Join the GiC Book Club in person at Main Point Books in Bryn Mawr, PA for our book club discussion on Saturday, October 24th at 5 p.m. Find our group on Meetup here.
