I am currently reading…
I literally just started three books again – one at home, one in the car, and one at school!
#1 – So many teachers and students have told me I need to read Simon vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda that I finally grabbed a copy to read when I am co-teaching in classes. Having just started, I am still trying to figure out the characters and what the major conflict will be. This story is a nominee for the 2017 Abe Lincoln Book Award as well!
#2 – Girl in the Blue Coat has been on my radar for a while. I have read several WWII books this past year, and this quote from Kristin Hannah convinced me to pick it up.
“Girl in the Blue Coat is a powerful, compelling coming-of-age story set against the dark and dangerous backdrop of World War II. It’s an important and page-turning look at the choices all of us-including young adults-have to make in wartime. A beautiful combination of heartbreak, loss, young love, and hope.” -Kristin Hannah, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Nightingale
The library only had a copy in audiobook format so I am listening to this to and from work each day.
I just finished…
If you haven’t read House Arrest, please go grab it! This book moved me to tears! Even though it is tagged as middle grade, I have talked this up among my high school students as it forces them to think about right and wrong and how far they would go to save someone’s life.
