The MEDIA BOOK CLUB is designed to increase comprehension and promote the joy of reading. Each month a book will be featured for discussion. Students will read the selected book and write a reflection of what they read to submit to the principal. Several students will be chosen each month to eat breakfast, chat, reflect and expound on the BOOK OF THE MONTH.
The BOOK OF THE MONTH for August 2015 is Amiri & Odette. The author of the book is Walter Dean Meyers. 

Book Overview: 
In this modern retelling of the Swan Lake ballet, acclaimed author Walter Dean Myers explores the sweet/sharp spark of love between two teens. A boy searches for his new found love among the city streets, to find that, unwarily, she's been caught in the arms of an evil street lord who means her harm. It is only through perseverance and undying love that the girl is returned to the safety of her one true love. Lyrical text and stunning mixed media artwork make for a powerful recasting of the classic ballet Swan Lake.
