The Mid Sun Book Club will meet Tuesday, December 10th during lunch break in Mr. Pratt’s room (2031). **Note this is a new day of the week and a new location**.
While eating our lunch, we will be talking about The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon.
Last month we discussed The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne. The students rated that book a 3.5 out of 5 stars. Set in Berlin in 1942 it is told through the eyes of a nine-year-old boy. The students found the narrator quite naïve for his age, showing the stark difference between a child in that era and a child in today’s media savvy world.
Next up is Gone by Michael Grant. If you are looking for book recommendations for your reader this holiday, some titles we have really enjoyed include: All These Things I’ve Done by Gabrielle Zevin, Maze Runner by James Dashner, Uglies by Scott Westerfeld, and Divergent by Veronica Roth (coming out as a movie in 2014).
