Fall Book Recommendations

Every Friday, our class holds a weekly Council Meeting, in which we discuss the highs and lows of the week. Students each take a turn leading council, and wrap up the meeting with a favorite book recommendation. Here are a few of the recommendations we’ve heard so far this year:

Rowan: A Year Without Autumn is about a girl who goes on vacation with her family and meets her best friend there. She ends up going into an old elevator, and goes forward in time. She realizes that her best friend’s family has changed a lot, and she tries to figure out what went wrong.

Kieran: The Martian is about this guy who is left for dead on Mars after his crew thinks he’s dead in a big sandstorm. He has to find multiple ways to survive, such as farming, since he’s a biologist. It’s a space survival story.
Tyler: Revolt on Alpha C is about a space cadet on a ship going to Alpha C. When he gets to the planet there’s turmoil there and a rebellion against earth. He has to decide between both sides.
