Catching Up on Books I finished...
The Tenth Circle by Jodi Picoult
Everything in Trixie Stone's life seemed great. She was in love, popular, and a great student. All of a sudden Trixie's life begins spiraling when her boyfriend breaks up with her and then she becomes a victim of rape. At the same time, Trixie's parents, David and Laura Stone, are battling their own demons and their own pasts.
Out of the Dust by Karen Hesse
An account, written in verse, of Billie Jo's life in Oklahoma during the dust bowls of the 1930's.
The Revealers by Doug Wilhelm
Russell, Elliot, and Catalina are tired of being bullied day in and day out at Parkland Middle School. The three band together to not only form new friendships but also fight back.
The school I am at is reading this book for a One Book One School event and will include an author visit. I think the sixth graders will be more into the book than the eighth graders.
