KCK Public Library announces March selection for online book club

KANSAS CITY, KAN. – Join Kansas City, Kansas Public Library’s Youngbloods Online Book Club to discuss this month’s creepy and enchanting selection, Fiendish by Brenna Yovanoff.  Members will also get a chance to read a Q&A between library staff and Yovanoff.

Fiendish is a strange and magical tale: Clementine DeVore spent ten years trapped in a cellar, pinned down by willow roots, silenced and forgotten.  Magic is a fearsome and hopeful thing.  For Clementine, magic is what imprisoned her and magic is what saved her life.

When terrifying and unexplainable things began to happen in the town of New South Bend, the townspeople turned on her kind – the magical families who got their power from the strange and terrible fiends in the woods of Wixby Hollow.

Seven-year-old Clementine was sealed in a cellar, told to hold still and sleep.  Ten years later she is discovered and released by a boy named Fisher.

Now a teenager, Clementine and Fisher must figure out exactly what happened all those years ago and why, before something terrible happens again.

Youngbloods is KCKPL’s first ever completely online book club.  Designed for book-lovers who want to enjoy the books and discuss at their own pace, the book club is solely hosted on the library’s eCommunity site and has no scheduled meetings.

It features video introductions to the books, interactive elements, and easy online commenting.

The book club features popular and engrossing young adult titles that are sure to appeal to adult readers. All books are available for instant download as audiobooks through the eCommunity site.

The library also carries print copies and one ebook copy for most of the books.  To join Youngbloods, visit
