What do you get when you mix a super fun quiz contest and the best teen books?
Start planning your team of 4 or 5 members now and be ready to register starting today. The contest is broken into 3 grade levels, and there will be a new champion after each day of battle.
Today is also the hotly anticipated release of the contest booklist. I have it from a contest organizer that, “The selected books for 2014 were chosen based on their student appeal, diverse subject matter and characters, representation of a wide variety of genres, and their literary merit.” Sounds promising…
Pick up your grade level book lists after school at a Carnegie Library location near you and start planning how to divvy up the list with your team. Don’t forget to choose an adult to act as your manager. Their job is to help organize your team and then cheer your on once game day arrives. Finally, be sure to clear your schedule for the actual battle…
