Reese fondly unveils her April 2022 Book Club Pick
Reese announced her Book Club pick for April 2022 is a brand new release: True Biz by Sara Novic in an animated and heartfelt video posted on her Instagram page gushing: “Goodness, I can’t even begin to put into words all the feelings this book provoked!”
Excitingly, just days after this post, True Biz made it onto the New York Times bestseller list. Reese was thrilled and quickly shared the news on the book club page: “Congratulations to @PhotoNovic! #TrueBiz is an instant #NYTimes Bestseller.”
Authored by Sara Novak, True Biz is set in a residential school for the deaf and follows the journey of a rebellious transfer student, named Charlie who has never encountered another deaf person before.
Reese sums it up so eloquently for her Book Club members: “An eye-opening and heartfelt story about human connection and the beauty and adversity woven into the deaf community and culture.” She wrote on Instagram.
APRIL’S PICK: True Biz, Hardback, £21.48 / $13.75 Amazon
Reese went on to explain how the latest book by the acclaimed author of Girl At War is an “educational and electrifying peek into a family that fights for connections even as the outside world threatens to close the door on them.” This sounds like another Sara Novak book not to miss and Reese invites everyone to pick up a copy and join the discussion all month long!
