New Teen Books = The Hook

New Teen Books = The Hook | Ignite Reading & Writing | Scoop.it

"As of right now, I have a book club formed with my students from tenth to twelve grade. They pick the books and we read them. Actually, they take turns choosing the books with the promise that we will finish any book that has been picked out of respect for the picker. In my place of work, I have had the wonderful opportunity to be trusted. I asked for a set of books, and if the budget allows, they are purchased. My closet consists of wonderful, new fiction and nonfiction that is written for a 21st century teenager."
