|Book Title and Author||Brief Summary|
|Nothing but the Truth by Avi||Nothing but the Truth is about a conflict between a teacher and a student. This is a book that is relevant to most students because we have all had that one teacher that we just can’t seem to get along with. Philip Malloy has that one teacher, and decides to tell a simple lie that turns into a complicated problem.|
This book is not only relevant that written is such a way that the students are all actively engaged.
|Flipped by Wendelin Van Draanen||Flipped shows us that looks can be deceiving and that like a book, you can’t judge a person by their cover. Flipped is told from the perspective of two 8th grade students who see the same situations very differently.|
We are able to look at complex themes, relationships, and perspectives through this book. We will also be able to watch the movie that was based off of the book. Again, most students really enjoy this book.
|The Giver by Lois Lowry||The Giver is a Dystopian novel that shows us a bleak and colorless future. Can one boy make a difference?|
