New Reading Schedule: The Invisible Order

Our newest book in Mayor Buddy’s Book Club is The Invisible Order, Book One: Rise of the Darklings by Paul Crilley. In this story, 12-year old Emily sees something she can’t understand and finds herself caught in an ages-old battle between our world and the other world. Now Emily, her younger brother William, their friend Jack and Corrigan must choose sides. But will they be able to make the right choice before our world is destroyed?

As always, feel free to read as fast or as slow as you would like; but below is a suggested reading schedule to have you ready for our next End of Book party!
