Join MoMath at Tween Primes, the MoMath book club, on April 26 to discuss Ruby Redfort Take Your Last Breath by Lauren Child.
As the book opens, Spectrum agent Ruby is at dive school in Hawaii, confronting one of her few fears (claustrophobia) and ignoring the sharks around her. Back home in Twinford, you can be sure both of these elements will resurface — along with pirates who are trying to kill her parents, messages sent over Muzak radio stations, a peculiarly potent sea monster, family legends featuring brave little girls and large gemstones, and the return of the evil Count von Viscount. Graphics include musical scores, maps that organize ideas and events, and Morse code, complete with appendices that discuss codebreaking in music, text, and graphics.
Start reading now so that you can join the fun on Wednesday, April 26 at 4:30 pm, with pizza and ice cream to follow.
