Book Journey with a children's version at Teach Mentor Texts.
This week, I finished Ninth Grade Slays, the second book in The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod by Heather Brewer, in preparation for my publisher's dinner with her. I then moved to Little Brother by Cory Doctorow in preparation for the May meeting of Teen Reads reading group.
