To help boys, we need to realize they have a different take on reading.”

JANUARY’S SELECTED TITLE:
Ship Breaker by Paolo Bacigalupi
Join the group just for guys in Grade 6-12!
“Ship Breaker is breathless, non stop action, with barely room to breathe!
Getting lost in ships, hurricanes, deadly infections, knife battles,
and that’s just the first third of this novel!
Along the way, much is given to the reader to think about.
Ship Breaker is set in the future, but all the big questions are about our today:
the divide between the haves and have nots, the ecological impact of actions,
the use of child labor, as well as questions about loyalty, choice, and fate.”
