Try this!

Friday’s meeting was challenging, but amazing.  In preparation for further nominations NEXT meeting, we were challenged to talk about our books WITHOUT referring to plot.  That’s right.  And these kids did an incredible job – writing style, characters, setting, organization of information – and only referred to the plot a few times when these things were necessarily influenced by the plot.  Not the other way around.  Great job, kids!

Now I challenge YOU – which books actually stand out before considering plot??
