Summer Series Choices for BOOK CLUBS!

Now that we are combining and then re-splitting the middle school book clubs by age group (there will now be one group for Grades 6+7 and one for Grades 8+9), we need to also split up the reading choices and have each group pick something to read OVER THE SUMMER. Here are our suggestions, below. Please note that we are NOT limited to these, but if you would like to suggest something else, we would appreciate it if you would EMAIL US YOUR SUGGESTION so we can put it out to the membership.

We will have a meeting of each group sometime before the end of May, to settle on a series for each. We'll keep you posted.
