Battle of the Books 2012 are chosen!!!

The books have officially been chosen and ordered for Battle of the Books 2012. For those of you unfamiliar with this competition, here's a synopsis: there's a fierce competition between the six member libraries of the Manitowoc-Calumet Library System. 8 books are chosen each year and 8 books are read each year by the teen groups at each library. In September, Battle of the Books is held to find out which team is the master of all the books chosen!

Battle of the Books will be held on Wednesday, September 5th at Silver Lake College. Once again this battle is open to any students entering 7th through 12th grade!

And the books are.....

The Running Dream by Wendelin Van Draanen
Ruby Red by Kerstin Gear
Can I see your I.D.? by Chris Barton
The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
A Time for Miracles by Anne-Laure Bondoux
The Fault in our Stars by John Green
