This is How It Always Is by Laurie Frankel

4 Seasons Book Club Selection

This is How It Always Is
by Laurie Frankel

This book tells the story of a family of five boys in Madison, Wisconsin. From a young age, youngest brother Claude is different from the other boys in his family. One day he puts on a dress and then refuses to stop wearing it. When he is three and is asked the question what he wants to be, he says "a girl." Parents Rosie and Penn want Claude to be whomever Claude wants to be, but are not ready to share this with the world. The family keeps it a secret, but as with most secrets, eventually they get told. This book will make you laugh, cry, and everything in between.

A limited number of copies of This is How It Always Is will be available for preregistered participants to borrow.
