A Day

 The Scholastic Book Fair is coming to the Transit Library from Wednesday, November 15 to Monday, November 20.  To get ready for the book fair let’s hear about one of the great books that will be on sale:  Don’t Cosplay with My Heart by Cecil Castellucci.  Gargantua is a resilient comic book villain who terrifies everyone with her superhuman powers!  Edan is a teenage girl with real-world problems.  But when Edan cosplays and wears the mask of Gargantua, it melts away her insecurities and she stands tall against her enemies and her parents.  Edan’s boyfriend Yuri and her best friend Katsumi are big supporters of her cosplaying ambitions until they point fingers at Edan for something she didn’t do!  It’s thrilling to cosplay as a villain, but being cast as one in real life—that’s another story.  That’s Don’t Cosplay with My Heart by Cecil Castellucci, available at the Scholastic Book Fair.

  Just a reminder- there is NO homework club after school today!

The Scholastic Book Fair is coming to the Transit Library from Wednesday, November 15 to Monday, November 20.  To get ready for the book fair let’s hear about one of the great books that will be on sale:  Slacker by Gordon Korman.  Cameron Boxer can’t help it if his natural talents at being a slacker make him an awesome gamer.  But after ignoring his mom’s request to keep an eye on the stove causes the Great Ziti Inferno in his kitchen, Cam’s parents force him to do the unthinkable----get involved in a real school activity!  When Cam creates the Positive Action Group as a joke, he’s shocked when students join and the real world is better than winning a gaming championship.

The Scholastic Book Fair is coming to the Transit Library from Wednesday, November 15 to Monday, November 20.  To get ready for the book fair let’s hear about one of the great books that will be on sale:  Swing It, Sunny, by Jennifer & Matthew Holm.  Surviving the first year of middle school is hard enough, but Sunny Lewin is also sad that her teenage brother, Dale, has been sent to military school.  Teddy, her little brother, can always be counted on to provide a few good laughs, and her beloved Gramp’s advice strengthens the love her parents provide.  But this thing called middle school is confusing!  Luckily, Sunny has a best friend and an odd new neighbor to occupy her thoughts.  She’s not about to allow the confusion of both school and family life keep her down!  That’s Swing It, Sunny by Jennifer & Matthew Holm, available at the Scholastic Book Fair.
