Last Cafe Library Book for this School Year!

We are going to read Thirteen Reasons Why: A Novel by Jay Asher for our last Cafe Library meeting of this school year. We read this book in the 09-10 school year but students have discovered it again as a great read.

Summary from our catalog: "High school student Clay Jenkins receives a box in the mail containing seven cassette tapes recorded by his crush, Hannah Baker, who committed suicide, and spends a bewildering and heartbreaking night crisscrossing their town, listening to Hannah's voice recounting the events leading up to her death."

March/April Book Club

We are reading The House of Tomorrow by Peter Bognanni. Here's the summary from our card catalog, "Sebastian Prendergast, having left the safety of the geodesic dome in which he lived after his grandmother had a stroke, meets sixteen-year-old Jared Whitcomb, and together the boys experience the angst of being teenagers while forming a punk rock band, but when Jared's grandma asks him to return to her home, he is faced with choosing between her dying wish and his newfound life." Elizabeth summed the book up in one sentence: "It was laugh-out-loud funny and times and really sad at times; it was a great book!!" I really loved this book too!  ~Mrs. Bade
