For December, the book is “Our Missing Hearts” by Celest Ng. Our discussion will be on December 13th at 10:30 a.m. at the Ludington Library.

Summary: Noah Gardner, known as Bird, is a 12-year-old Chinese American living with his father in Cambridge, Mass. His mother is a fugitive, on the run because she wrote a supposedly subversive poem titled “All Our Missing Hearts.” America is living under PACT — the Preserving American Culture and Traditions Act — which became law during a confused and economically disastrous period known as the Crisis.
