Garden City School Library: RICBA 2017

How It Works

All you have to do to vote in the RICBA election in February is read three of the twenty books on the list. 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 Full Cicada Moon, How to Swallow a Pig, Lillian's Right to Vote, The Misadventures of the Family Fletcher, and Took).
