Book Clubs

We have just started our new book clubs, and they are going to be fun!  You will meet with your club tomorrow and come up with a name and some rules to make it run smoothly. I love adult book clubs because I think it is fun to discuss good books with other people. Please tell us the name of the book you are reading, what you think about your book so far, what are the main character's major problems, and what are you looking forward to during book clubs. Write about 4 to 5 complete sentences with the correct punctuation and capitalization.

Please share your mountain tops with us! What is the most intense part of your story...the problem at its worst! Write four to five sentences using the correct grammar and punctuation.
