What the Book Clubs are Reading - February 2013

*this is cross posted at the DMS School Library blog

These are our last free reads before our One Book, One School kickoff next month.

6th Graders - Wonder by RJ Palacio

One student has already told me how she passed Wonder around to people in her family. That's what you want to hear!

7th Grade Randolph - The False Prince (Ascendence Trilogy, 1) by Jennifer A. Nielsen

A favorite of mine and Mrs. Randolph's. Hope the students love it as much as we do.

7th Grade Roberts - Starters (Starters and Enders, 1) by Lissa Price

8th Graders had mixed reactions to this one. My reluctant readers seemed to really like it and my avid readers gave it about 3.5.  We'll see how this group reacts.
