Celebrate Teen Read Week with Book Club

So 2014 Teen Read Week is over.  Book Club began as usual with a pizza party and students learning about what Book Club is about.

We had a lot of fun choosing what book club option we wanted to pursue and then what book we wanted to read.  No surprises... both lunches chose read a book and watch the movie.  And  again no surprises in which books the students chose.

1st Lunch is reading Insurgent by Veronica Roth and watching "Divergent."
2nd Lunch is reading Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and watching "Hunger Games."

Books with movies that have come out are always a favorite.  We had to disqualify Fault in our Stars by John Green and Maze Runner by James Dashner because the movies haven't come out as videos yet.
