We had a great discussion this morning on Inside Out and Back Again by Thanhhai Lai, a story told completely in verse form about a Vietnamese girl's 4th grade experience in Alabama. Students in all grades came and really enjoyed the book. It was a "quick read" and one of my favorites!
Our next book is Brand-New Emily by Ginger Rue. Rue lives in Alabama. We hope you will join us in Irondale Middle School's library!
