With 23 present tonight, we had great discussion!
Rebekah highly recommends Across the Great Barrier. She really likes the combination of realistic story and great characters with the magical elements and obstacles.
Patrick and Kyle both recommend Bird in a Box. This historical fiction has impressed them with its characters and being able to feel part of it all.
Aparna highly recommends The Unwanteds for Mock Newbery consideration. You just have to read it!
And Ajay really likes Kick. He truly identifies with the main character and wants everyone to read this one.
(We took 5 titles off our reading list this meeting.)
What would you recommend for the Mock Newbery winner so far this year?
