The Nest By Kenneth Oppel
This is my first BoB book of the year and I can't wait to dive into this creepy tale!
Ms. Stephens just finished reading:
Lucky Broken Girl by Ruth Behar
This is a semi-autobiographical tale of a young girl in a terrible car accident who has to stay lying down in a body cast for a year. The story tells of her strength and perseverance through this difficult time. The book also deals with identity and family. Her family members are Jewish-Cuban immigrants to the United States. A quick read that I think students will find interesting and inspirational.
