Huge thanks to Mr. Miller at East Side Middle School for inviting me to meet and talk with his sixth graders. (And thanks again for lunch!) Here’s a list of the books I spoke about:
Hitler Youth: Growing Up in Hitler’s Shadow by Susan Campbell Bartoletti
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne
Things Not Seen by Andrew Clements
The Rag and Bone Shop by Robert Cormier
Forged by Fire by Sharon Draper
Rash by Pete Hautman
Born to Rock by Gordon Korman
Give a Boy a Gun by Todd Strasser
Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
And a special note to Zack: I did not find anything definitive about the number of dogs on a sled team, but it is not unusual to have an odd number.
Thanks again for the invite–I look forward to seeing you all again soon!
