*Students need to read the book before attending each meeting. (If the text is too hard for your child to understand, parents may feel free to read sections aloud to the child for better enjoyment of the novel or have your child listen to the story with an audiobook version.) *To help students prepare for our group discussion they will need to complete the provided discussion questions. They should be prepared to share their thoughts verbally during our book club meetings.
