Help me give my students an entertaining adventure in reading where each student in my library book group will read the amazing new mystery book by YA author Karen McManus, and then participate in a fun mystery game!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I am the library media specialist at a large urban high school where many of my students are challenged by the demands and rigor of reading. While there are pockets of "readers" who love to read and visit the library often to get books, there is a large percentage of reluctant readers who see reading as a chore.
Improving student literacy is a necessary goal for our school which makes getting our students college and career ready a unique challenge.
We motivate our students to incorporate independent reading into their day but getting our students to recognize the importance of reading independently often poses a challenge, especially for those who have struggled for most of their lives. That is why combining an awesome book with a fun reward just might change their minds!
I have a wonderful library book group that I started last year. The students independently asked this school year to continue with it. I am super excited to bring new books to these students, especially the new YA mystery book by Karen McManus, and offer a fun way of engaging them through reading.
Most of my students have limited resources to create their own personal libraries of books in their homes.
By obtaining new YA books and letting my students read them and keep them, I (and you) will be sharing the gift of book love and ownership, and of course, reading!
