Read about these 3 books! They are all sooo cool! Then vote! We’ll announce the winner next week, Wednesday, March 14! Here are the books to choose from:
Flipped by Wendelin Van Draanen
This is one of the best books about boy/girl relationships and how we need to listen with laughter, compassion and an open heart. When Julianna met Bryce, she flipped, it was his eyes. All Bryce ever wanted was for Juliana to leave him alone… for good. Thus the beginning of the like/dislike friendship starts the story and carries the reader through to a dynamic ending. ~ Flashlight Worthy
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. Each year, the districts are forced by the Capitol to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the Hunger Games, a brutal and terrifying fight to the death – televised for all of Panem to see.
Survival is second nature for sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who struggles to feed her mother and younger sister by secretly hunting and gathering beyond the fences of District 12. When Katniss steps in to take the place of her sister in the Hunger Games, she knows it may be her death sentence. If she is to survive, she must weigh survival against humanity and life against love
Please note: this book is recommended for ages 12 and up ~ CommonSense Media
