Are you ready to Battle with Books?


Sahana Talwar

There are plenty of books that describe battles, but have you ever actually thought about what a book battle would look like. No, the books aren’t coming to life and killing each other, and people aren’t using books to try and win a war with paper cuts. Battle of the Books is a district competition in which teams of 3-5 read a list of books and answer questions on them.

Our school currently has one Battle of the Books team, but with a few more interested people, we could have two. If you’re interested, contact Mrs. Truss, and she will give you more information.

Even if you’re not interested, this year’s book list is amazing.

Everless by: Sara Holland
The Night Diary by: Veera Hiranandani
Not If I Save You First by: Ally Carter
Resistance by: Jennifer Nielsen
After Zero by: Christina Collins
Time Bomb by: Joelle Charbonneau

All of these books can be found at the school library. Happy reading!
