OFFICIAL BOOK CLUB SELECTIONS

We had our BOOK CLUB PARTY and made our selections:


The 8+9 Club will be reading the Midnighters series, by Scott Westerfeld (who also wrote Uglies etc. and Leviathan etc.). The first book is called The Secret Hour:

In Bixby, Oklahoma, time freezes for an hour at midnight, and only those born precisely at the moment of midnight can enter that hour. These Midnighters discover they each have a special power (only available to them during this hour). Jessica Day, a 15-year-old (born at midnight) who has just moved to Bixby, is trying to discover hers...

The 6+7 Club is receiving their runner-up series choice. We're sorry, but the Jack Higgins series we selected has one book out of print, and the first book is not readily obtainable either. So, we MAY be reading the Faerie Wars Chronicles, by Herbie Brennan (although this one is hard to find as well, and we are still researching):

While Henry Atherton is doing chores at the house of eccentric old Mr. Fogarty, he comes upon Pyrgus Malvae, crown prince of the faerie Realm, who has escaped (through a portal to mundane Earth) from the Faeries of the Night, who want to kill him. Mr. Fogarty and Henry decide to help the prince return home, but the challenges they face are complex: an evil demon, two glue factory owners, and Lord Hairstreak (leader of the bad faeries), all of whom wish to take over the Realm.

Or, we MAY be reading Sandry's Book--The Circle of Magic series, Book One, by Tamora Pierce!

Four elements of power, four mages-in-training learning to control them. In Book 1 of the Circle of Magic Quartet, gifted young weaver Sandry is brought to the Winding Circle community. There she meets Briar, a former thief with a way with plants; Daja, an outcast gifted at metalcraft; and Tris, whose connection with the weather unsettles everyone, including herself. The four misfits are taught how to use their magic, but when disaster strikes, it's up to Sandry to weave together four different kinds of power to save herself, her friends, and Winding Circle.


The books are on order, and we will email/call you when we have received them to tell you when you may pick them up and start reading!
