February Buddy Read

Beyond The Point by Claire Gibson (William Morrow)

February 2, 2021

Dear Readers,

I am so excited to share that my friend Katie and I are hosting a buddy read for Beyond The Point by Claire Gibson this month. This is literally the easiest buddy read to participate in. All you need to do is read this book at your own pace and join in the final discussion on Sunday, February 28, 2021 at 8pm EST/7pm CST on an instagram private chat. Our last buddy read (My Dark Vanessa by Kate Elizabeth Russell) was wicked successful and probably one of my all time favorite book discussions. The feedback Katie and I received from the group was so tremendous and encouraging that we decided to team up again with a few more books.

If you have an instagram account and would like to join in with an awesome group of fellow readers from all over the country, please connect with me via email or message me on instagram. It is simple and a great way to connect with some new readers.

Check out the Synopsis Below…

Three women are brought together in an enthralling story of friendship, heartbreak, and resilience. Set at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, this is an amazing debut novel.

Duty. Honor. Country. That’s West Point’s motto, and every cadet who passes through its stone gates vows to live it. But on the eve of 9/11, as Dani, Hannah and Avery face four grueling years ahead, they realize they’ll only survive if they do it together.

Everyone knows Dani is going places. With athletic talent and a brilliant mind, she navigates West Point’s predominantly male environment with wit and confidence, breaking stereotypes and embracing new friends.

Hannah’s grandfather, a legendary Army general, offers a stark warning about the dangers that lie ahead, but she moves forward anyway, letting faith guide her path. When she meets her soul mate at West Point, the future looks perfect, just as planned.

Wild child Avery moves fast and doesn’t mind breaking a few rules (and hearts) along the way. But she can’t outpace her self-doubt, and the harder she tries, the further it leads her down a treacherous path.

The world—of business, of love, and of war—awaits Dani, Hannah, and Avery beyond the gates of West Point. These three women know that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. But soon, that adage no longer rings true—for their future, or their friendship. As they’re pulled in different directions, will their hard-forged bond prevail or shatter?

Beyond the Point is a heartfelt look at how our closest friends can become our fiercest battle buddies. After all, the greatest battles we fight rarely require a uniform.”

Can’t wait to read and talk about this book with everyone!
