Book Club is about to take off!

Hey Bookies!
Let's meet on Thursday, September 29th during 6th/7th lunch in Mr. Custis' room (B114)to do introductions, talk about the logistics of the club, and choose a first book to read. If you have suggestions for our first book, add them as a comment to this post, and I will take it under advisement as I make the choice. Woohoo for book club!

I have a suggestion. I have heard good things about
"Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children" by Ransom Riggs.

Mrs. Pulley, not sure if we can get enough copies or not.
Amazon Review below
As a kid, Jacob formed a special bond with his grandfather over his bizarre tales and photos of levitating girls and invisible boys. Now at 16, he is reeling from the old man's unexpected death. Then Jacob is given a mysterious letter that propels him on a journey to the remote Welsh island where his grandfather grew up. There, he finds the children from the photographs--alive and well--despite the islanders’ assertion that all were killed decades ago. As Jacob begins to unravel more about his grandfather’s childhood, he suspects he is being trailed by a monster only he can see. A haunting and out-of-the-ordinary read, debut author Ransom Rigg’s first-person narration is convincing and absorbing, and every detail he draws our eye to is deftly woven into an unforgettable whole. Interspersed with photos throughout, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is a truly atmospheric novel with plot twists, turns, and surprises that will delight readers of any age

I have read 3 books that I have loved!! The first of them is "I am the Wallpaper", second is "The Secret Zoo", and the last on is "Thirteen". I love all of these books because they are about struggles in life and annoying little kids, friendships and bravery, and a normal 13 year olds life. These are some great books I recommend for middle schoolers who love fiction and real life.
