School Library Journal: Battle of the Books

March is known for March Madness but for those that want a more cerebral challenge School Library Journal sponsors a Kids Battle of the Books. . Last year the winner was a Wheatley School fave, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. This year, who knows. One of our Book club picks, Marcelo In the Real World is in the running, but also Fire, the prequel to another Wheatley fave, Graceling. You can participate in the process- there is a new feature -"The Undead", in which YOU can select one book, that IF axed by a celebrity judge , will be resurrected in the final round. Sort of an American Idol for the bookish set. Check it out and post your comments here!
