2017-2018 BOB Summer Reading

To all who might be interested in participating on our BOB team this coming school year, we will have our first meeting Thursday afternoon, Aug 31, 2017 until 5:00.  How about some wonderful stories to meet your reading requirements and be apart of our great team.  Battle of the Books reads from a state selected list of 27 books and students are expected to read all the books.  Reading over the summer helps so that you don’t have so many to read during the school year.  However, do not skim over the books.  During the competition, you will have to remember every little detail! Our six summer reading titles and authors are listed below.  My recommendation is that you not rush when reading these but rather take your time to absorb details.  If you finish these titles, feel free to read something else from the 2017-18 book list.  The link is below.

Books to be reading until then:

Tangerine by Edward Bloor

The House of Scorpion by Nancy Farmer

Prisoner B-3087 by Alan Gratz

Beneath My Mother’s Feet by Amjed Qamar

The Alchemyst by Michael Scott

Outcasts United: The Story of a Refugee Soccer Team That Changed a Town by Warren St. John (Do not confuse this with the adult edition of this book.)
