“Page Turners” Book Club Selection for August

“The Page Turners,“ a book club co-sponsored by Princeton Public Library and the Friends of the Library, meets on the second Thursday of every month in The Matson Meeting Room, 6:30–8:00 p.m.

The book selected for Thursday, August 11, will be What Happened to the Bennetts?, a heart-wrenching thriller from best-selling author Lisa Scottoline.

Jason Bennett is a suburban dad who owns a court-reporting business, but one night, his life takes a horrific turn. He is driving his family home after his daughter’s field hockey game when a pickup truck begins tailgating them, on a dark stretch of road. Suddenly two men jump from the pickup and pull guns on Jason, demanding the car. A horrific flash of violence changes his life forever.

Later that awful night, Jason and his family receive a visit from the FBI. The agents tell them that the carjackers were members of a dangerous drug-trafficking organization – and now Jason and his family are in their crosshairs. The agents advise the Bennetts to enter the witness protection program right away, and they have no choice but to agree. But WITSEC was designed to protect criminal informants, not law-abiding families. Taken from all they know, trapped in an unfamiliar life, the Bennetts begin to fall apart at the seams. Then Jason learns a shocking truth and realizes that he has to take matters into his own hands. Sometimes justice is a one-man show.

Patrons should call the library to reserve a copy of the book.  Bring a book title and author that you would recommend to the group for future monthly selections.  The Page Turners Book Club is open to all library card holders looking for their next great read!

    1. Hi, John Luke – Since you are a reciprocal borrower with a card originating at another library, you will need to make your book request through that library (if the book is on our shelves, you may check it out when you are here, but unfortunately, we are not able to place holds for reciprocal borrowers)
