Come join Mrs. Susina for the St. Benedict “Hooked on Books” Club
The “Hooked on Books Club” Club will meet on Tuesday, May 12th during recess. We will be reading the new graphic novel Roller Girl by Victoria Jamieson. Students should have the book read before our meeting date so that we can discuss the entire book. This will be the LAST book club for the 2014-2015 school year.
For most of her twelve years, Astrid has done everything with her best friend Nicole. But after Astrid falls in love with roller derby and signs up for derby camp, Nicole decides to go to dance camp instead. And so begins the most difficult summer of Astrid’s life as she struggles to keep up with the older girls at camp, hang on to the friend she feels slipping away, and cautiously embark on a new friendship. As the end of summer nears and her first roller derby bout (and junior high!) draws closer, Astrid realizes that maybe she is strong enough to handle the bout, a lost friendship, and middle school… in short, strong enough to be a roller girl.
Students can check this book out of our school library, the public library, or borrow from a friend. If you would like Mrs. Susina to order a copy of the book for you, please send $11 (cash if possible) to school by Friday, April 24th. This will allow enough time for the books to arrive and for your child to have the book read by our club date.
