Wonder by R.J. Palacio
Do not read it because you have soccer. You have homework. You have chores. You have to sleep. Don't even start this book because you will be so interested in it you won't have time for all your other activities. Even though it is a really awesome book about a boy who was born with a deformed face and so everyone treats him differently and then he goes to school for the first time and wonderful and awful things happen to him. Because of his face. Hmmmm.... Just don't read it; you don't have time. If you don't believe me, ask Sophie Greenwood, she'll tell you!
Have you seen the new 'Readbox' in the front hall by the main office? This is for YOU to exchange books for FREE! Bring some of your (gently used) books from home to donate. Place them on the shelves for others to read. Feel free to take a book home that someone else didn't want anymore! What a great way to recycle and enjoy a book! Just make sure that your book is appropriate for elementary school. HAVE FUN!
