I just finished the fabulous Book Scavenger by Jennifer Chambliss Bertman. It has all the things I loved when I was in middle school: codes, clues, mysteries and, of course, books! Actually, I still love all these things. 🙂
The story focuses around a game called– you guessed it– Book Scavenger. The fabulous thing is– you can actually play the game in real life!
TA Library is Hiding Books
The TA Library will be hiding books regularly as long as students keep finding them. It would be great if you hid books, too. They don’t have to just be at TA, either. Follow the lead of the characters and get creative! TA Library would love to share photos of your creative hiding places, cool secret codes or book finding triumphs!
Just like the library in the book, TA Library will be putting our book about secret codes and ciphers on RESERVE. This means it has to stay in the library so everyone can use it. Ask the librarian where you can find it.
“The sheriff’s son, Kellan Turner, is not the golden boy everyone thinks he is, and Romy Grey knows that for a fact. Because no one wants to believe a girl from the wrong side of town, the truth about him has cost her everything-friends, family, and her community. Branded a liar and bullied relentlessly by a group of kids she used to hang out with, Romy’s only refuge is the diner where she works outside of town. No one knows her name or her past there; she can finally be anonymous. But when a girl with ties to both Romy and Kellan goes missing after a party, and news of him assaulting another girl in a town close by gets out, Romy must decide whether she wants to fight or carry the burden of knowing more girls could get hurt if she doesn’t speak up. Nobody believed her the first time-and they certainly won’t now-but the cost of her silence might be more than she can bear” (from the publisher’s site).
