Karla Uh-oh...only three stars? That's this year's YA choice for One Book New Jersey:

http://www.onebooknewjersey.org/young...

Tonight the teens are voting on whether or not to have a discussion on this book.


Kate No, I really liked it! But I'm super picky about the books I give 4 & 5 stars to - 4 is DYNAMITE AWESOME, 5 is LIFE CHANGING. Three is very solid! I thought it was a great book and it would be a terrific discussion starter with teens. They won't believe what Miranda and her family go through... lots of "what ifs" and implications for our own world to play with.

Let me know how the discussion goes!

Karla Ahh--your scoring system is good. I'm probably too easy, although I do maintain that Hellboy is lifechanging....

Turns out one of our Teen Advisory Board members had read the book a few months ago. Her enthusiastic description of the story prompted the others to vote yes on the book discussion AND craft project related to the handcrafted items the family needed to make to survive. Gotta read the book to see what would be feasible...

:)
You rock!
