Here's what I read last week:
This book came in the mail last week but I couldn't bring it to school until I read it first. I'm so glad I did. When the students in Ms. Hill's Fifth Grade Class learn that their school is closing at the end of the year, they each have a different reaction. Told in rhyme in eighteen diverse voices, this book is about so much more than the closing of a school It's about friendship, adjusting to change, the encouragement of an amazing teacher, and most of all, it's about finding your own voice. I can't wait to share it with my students.
This science fiction novel is also told in two voices. The e-reader can choose to read one story at a time or to go back and forth between the main characters. Lyra and Gemma have to change their outlook on life when they discover everything they thought they knew about themselves is a lie. I will be anxiously awaiting the sequel to find out what their futures hold.
