PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- Olivia's Book Club met for the first time in 2020, and we started off with a winner.

Beyond the Pale

Beyond the Pale by Jennifer Millikin

The group met in the First Draft Book Bar at Changing Hands Bookstore and overwhelmingly enjoyed "Beyond the Pale" by Jennifer Millikin. The local author joined the group to talk about her novel set in Arizona.

Members had plenty of questions and comments about the the protagonist, Lennon, and her relationship with Brady and Finn. The love triangle, family dynamics, and musings on friendship all made an impact on readers, who were excited to hear how Millikin decided which characters would end up together. 

Jennifer Millikin is already working on a follow up to this book, called "One Good Thing."
