Hey high schoolers: what makes you who you are? Join Girl Scouts of Colorado on July 30, 2020 at 4 p.m. for Senior/Ambassador Book Club as we discuss “Piecing Me Together” by Renée Watson.
In this month’s book, our fierce female lead, Jade, thrives in the high-intensity academic world of her new private school. But, throughout the novel, Jade struggles to find her voice as she grapples with a society that seems to view her as a problem to fix. “Piecing Me Together” elegantly explores the complicated ideas of race, privilege, gender, class, and community. While reading, consider the complexity of your own identity. Please read the book in its entirety before the book club and come prepared with your questions, ideas, and opinions.
We want to hear how your girl is using her Girl Scout skills by taking initiative, caring for the community, and Girl Scouting at home. She can send in her story here.
