Seventh and eighth graders participating in Cafe Book at Walker Grant Middle School have chosen their Top Picks and Favorites. Check 'em out!
The Top Picks:
The Enemy by Charlie Higson
After a disease turns everyone over sixteen into brainless, decomposing, flesh-eating creatures, a group of teenagers leave their shelter and set out of a harrowing journey across London to the safe haven of Buckingham Palace.
Maze Runner by James Dashner
Sixteen-year-old Thomas wakes up with no memory in the middle of a maze and realizes he must work with the community in which he finds himself if he is to escape.
Bruiser by Neal Shusterman
Inexplicable events start to occur when sixteen-year-old twins Tennyson and Brontë befriend a troubled and misunderstood outcast, aptly nicknamed Bruiser, and his little brother, Cody.
Candor by Pam Bachorz
For a fee, "model teen" Oscar Banks has been secretly--and selectively-- sabotaging the subliminal messages that program the behavior of the residents of Candor, Florida, until his attraction to a rebellious new girl threatens to expose his subterfuge.
Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins
Sophie has just been exiled to Hex Hall, a school for rebellious teens…of the supernatural sort. Witches like herself, werewolves, and even a vampire or two are her new classmates, along with a host of equally unusual teachers. As mysterious and murderous events unfold, Sophie learns about her past and a secret society that dooms them all.
