Tue Aug 16th We will meet to discuss 'This Child of Ours' by Sadie Pearse.

Riley Pieterson is an adventurous girl with lots of questions and plenty she doesn't know yet: what a human brain looks like, all the constellations in the night sky, why others can't see her the way she sees herself.
When Riley confides in her parents, Sally and Theo, that she feels uncomfortable in her own skin, they have completely different reactions. Sally wants to support her daughter by helping her be who she dreams of being, but Theo thinks Riley is a seven-year-old child pushing boundaries.
