Class experience

US Grade 5 - 8
Saundra Mitchell has been a phone psychic, a car salesperson, a denture-deliverer and a layout waxer. Sheโ€™s dodged trains, endured basic training, and hitchhiked from Montana to California. The author of nearly twenty books for tweens and teens, Mitchellโ€™s work includes Edgar Award nominee SHADOWED SUMMER and Indiana Author Award Winner and Lambda Nominee ALL THE THINGS WE DO IN THE DARK. She is the editor of four anthologies for teens, DEFY THE DARK, ALL OUT, OUT NOW and OUT THERE. She always picks truth; dares are too easy.
All the books chosen for this class are widely considered suitable for middle school students. However, it's crucial for adults to take into account the unique reading capabilities, emotional maturity, and socio-emotional requirements of their specific learner before enrolling them in this book club. It's worth noting that some of the selected books delve into complex topics including bullying, survival scenarios, themes of sexuality, and some of the more somber episodes of history. Parents and guardians should be aware of these elements to ensure a positive and enriching reading experience for their child.
