Tween/Teen Book Club
Read the latest Newbery Award book, graphic novel New Kid, by Jerry Craft. Seventh grader Jordan Banks loves nothing more than drawing cartoons about his life. But instead of sending him to the art school of his dreams, his parents enroll him in a prestigious private school known for its academics, where Jordan turns out to be one of the few kids of color in his entire grade. As he makes the daily trip from his Washington Heights apartment to the upscale Riverdale Academy Day School, Jordan soon finds himself torn between two worlds - and not really fitting into either one. Middle school's hard enough without all the unspoken rules and expectations that come with being the new kid!
We are also reading Freak the Mighty, by Rodman, Philbrick. At the beginning of eigth grade, learning disabled Max and his new friend "Freak", whose birth defect has affected his body but not his brilliant mind, find that when they combine forces they make a powerful team.
There will be a book club meeting over the the 5th grade lunch period on the same day for Glacier Creek 5th graders, anyone can come to the after school meeting here at the public library. We are reading the same books. You can pick up copies of the books at either location. Join us where and when you can - all are welcome.
Sign up at the library service desk.
Snacks will be served!
