You might be wondering: Why are we voting two weeks in a row? In a Senior Planet Book Club first, the top choice from last week’s poll is not available in most libraries and we had the largest vote gap between the first and second choices that we have ever seen.
So, we wanted to give our devoted readers a chance to vote between a different book by the frontrunner author (The Unexpected Inheritance of Inspector Chopra by Vaseem Khan) that is more readily available and the original second choice (White Ivy by Susie Yang).
We’ll announce the result of the poll and how you can access a copy of the chosen book next Tuesday!

“On the day he retires, Inspector Ashwin Chopra inherits two unexpected mysteries. The first is the case of a drowned boy, whose suspicious death no one seems to want solved. And the second is a baby elephant. As his search for clues takes him across the teeming city of Mumbai, from its grand high rises to its sprawling slums and deep into its murky underworld, Chopra begins to suspect that there may be a great deal more to both his last case and his new ward than he thought. And he soon learns that when the going gets tough, a determined elephant may be exactly what an honest man needs.” – GoodReads.com
“Ivy Lin is a thief and a liar—but you’d never know it by looking at her. Raised outside of Boston, she is taught how to pilfer items from yard sales and second-hand shops by her immigrant grandmother. Thieving allows Ivy to accumulate the trappings of a suburban teen—and, most importantly, to attract the attention of Gideon Speyer, the golden boy of a wealthy political family. But when Ivy’s mother discovers her trespasses, punishment is swift and Ivy is sent to China, where her dream instantly evaporates.” – GoodReads.com
