January Book Club Selection

Highest Tide

The Natural History Society Book Club will meet on Monday, January 26, 3:30 to 5:00 pm to discuss The Highest Tide, by Jim Lynch.

One moonlit night, thirteen-year-old Miles O’Malley sneaks out of his house and goes exploring on the tidal flats of Puget Sound. When he discovers a rare giant squid, he instantly becomes a local phenomenon shadowed by people curious as to whether this speed-reading, Rachel Carson obsessed teenager is just an observant boy or an unlikely prophet.

The Highest Tide is a poignant coming-of-age story and a gripping novel of natural wonder about one boy’s enchantment with the sea during a summer that will change his life, and the lives around him.
