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.
