North Platte Teen Book Clubs Update
December 06, 2010
Last month, North Platte's Jr. High Teen Book Club read Found, by Margaret Haddix. The general consensus was that this is a great book, and the group would highly recommend it. Most of the students have gone on to read the rest of the series as well. The series is called The Missing. The second book in the series is Sent, and the third is called Sabotaged.
Our next Teen Book Club meeting for the North Platte Jr. High students is Thursday, January 6, 2011. We will be discussing The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin.
Last month, North Platte's High School Teen Book Club read Deadline by Chris Crutcher. Everyone seemed to enjoy this book, and the book sparked a discussion about what you would do if you only had a year to live. Would you follow your dreams and live life to the very fullest? Or, would you curl up and count down the days you have left? While this may seem like a very depressing topic for a book, it was actually very inspiring.
Our next Teen Book Club meeting for the North Platte High School students is Wednesday, December 22, 2010. We will be discussing Hate List by Jennifer Brown.
