Escondido Public Library Teen Book Club Discusses ‘Firstlife’

Escondido Public Library’s Burritos & Book Club for teens ages 13-18, meets on Wednesday, November 29, in the Turrentine Room from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. The selected title is “Firstlife” by Gena Showalter.

Copies are available for checkout in the Library’s Teen Area or can be reserved using the Library’s online catalog at Students at Escondido High School, San Pasqual High School, and Orange Glen High School can also check out copies at their school library.

Everyone lives a first life. Before you get to live your next life, the Everlife, you must choose a realm in which to live. Tenley is currently living her first life and has been imprisoned in an asylum because she refuses to make that choice. Representatives from both realms, Troika and Myriad, are there to persuade her due to the uniqueness of her soul. Escaping from the asylum, Tenley is on the run and becomes caught between the boy she’s falling for and the realm she wants to support. Can she stay alive long enough to make a decision?

After discussing “Firstlife,” teens can share other books they have enjoyed and select the next Burritos & Book Club title. Complimentary burritos will be provided, and all participants receive a free book or audiobook at the end of the program.

This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Escondido Public Library and Taco Bell located at 1944 E. Valley Pkwy in Escondido. Library programs, events, and services are free and open to the public. Escondido Public Library is located at 239 South Kalmia St.
