I am not sure what is up with me this summer, but I didn’t read as many books as I thought I would…but I did read some amazing ones.
My promise/hope is that this year you’ll read with me and we can discover some great stories together. Maybe I just felt too isolated this summer.
So: here are ones I did read. No spoilers, which is why there is an absence of literary analysis.
This was a great book, and I highly recommend it.
I just started reading some of these stories. When we do our “fear” unit in October, we will talk about the nature of fear, and do different cultures fear different things, and why: most importantly, how do we combat what we fear?
All American Boys by Jason Reynolds is the one I just started (and I’m hooked already).
