Book Club: The Monsters of Templeton

Our April Book was The Monsters of Templeton by Lauren Groff.

In short I liked it! I thought it was a fun read - light and breezy, but still interesting.

The book is about a girl (Willie) who returns to her home town after a 'mishap' at graduate school. Then Willie's hippie mother lets it slip that Willie is not the love child of an unknown man from San Francisco, but instead was fathered by a man from her small town. The remaining story involves Willie's intense research to identify her real father.

Oh yeah - and did I mention that the day she arrives back to the town a huge monster (similar to Loch Ness) is discovered dead in the lake? Well, there's that too.

But I swear it is a good book. Don't let the monster throw you off... it's worth the read.
