(Recommended for 7 &8th graders*) Close to Famous by Joan Bauer
The residents of Culpepper, despite their grand aspirations, have made little progress toward achieving their goals, but unexpected events and surprises put the ambitions of the residents of Culpepper to the test. *Schneider Award, 2012
(Recommended for 9th & 10th*) The Future of Us by Jay Asher
Emma gets her first computer and an America Online CD-ROM in 1996, and when her best friend Josh visits and they log on, they discover themselves on Facebook fifteen years in the future.
ALSO, this year we’re starting a camp library! Here’s what you do: bring books to camp, sign your name and the year you’re reading in the front cover, and leave them at camp in our library. Not only will we build an awesome library, we’ll also keep an amazing record of Timber Tops readers. Maybe your daughter will pick up your very book in 30 years! See? Who needs an e-reader at camp? Not us!
Counselors, you can join in too! Why not!?
See you at camp in TWO SHORT WEEKS (but who’s counting?)!!!!
