See below for plot summaries and links to book trailers. Then, after you finish a book, submit a form to Ms. Moore with a super short summary and your opinion about it. You can use the paper form at school or this online form from any computer:

All book summaries courtesy of RICBA committee members and Follett. Thanks to Katie Tanner and Sue Rose for collecting them and creating LibGuide boxes I was able to reuse here. If the title of a book is blue, you can click on it to watch a book trailer (we're missing Sadie's Story, I Dissent, The Eureka Key, Weekends with Max and His Dad, and Wet Cement). Thanks to Carolyn Steward for collecting most of the trailers.

You can print out this chart of book covers and keep track of which ones you've read.
