Miss Colleen’s selection of Nick and Tesla’s High-Voltage Danger Lab was a hit not only for the book club members, but also the adults. A thriller full of suspense and pretty cool experiments (this coming from a liberal arts person), I read my copy in one night.
Due to the high volume (sweet!) of experiments Miss Colleen’s mom brought with her, we changed the mode of discussion. Each member chose a favorite question out of the three written in her journal, wrote said question on an index card, and placed it in a bowl. Members then chose a question (blindly) from the bowl and were given time to think about the answer before sharing with the rest of the group.
After discussion it was experiment time, their favorite.

To conclude, members were given a choice of ice cream flavors including mint chip and double chocolate chunk (the hub was unable to find double chocolate praline) because this was what Nick and Tesla devoured at the end of the book. Takeaway was a sandwich bag full of diluted highlighter juice to be used in a top secret manner of the Book Club Babe’s choosing much like Nick and Tesla used it to track the van in chapters 9-10.
