This week I'm doing a little preparation for my Smarties for AFTER our Spring Break. We just finished up The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordin, and I want to get back into independent novels. I'm looking for books that have multiple perspectives, so I picked up this to use as my novel in the study: Day of Tears by Julius Lester.
Holy WOW! This book is amazing! The figurative language in it is amazing! I can't wait to get my Reading Graffiti wall up after break.
Good Reads Summary:
I know a lot of my students will pick Riordin's books. They love him. But I'm hoping a few will branch out into some different territories.
My daughter is currently reading: I am Number Four by Pittacus Lore.
I'm really interested to see how she likes this book because generally, she is not into science fiction. Here is the Goodreads summary.
