Announcing the DENbrarian Book Selection for August: The Fault in Our Stars

Discovery’s DENbrarians are getting their YA “book on” every month!  Wanna join us?  We’re looking for 10 Media Specialists who would like to select the book for DENbrarian! In October, the lovely and talented Susan Gauthier from Louisiana will be our hostess.  Click here if you’d like to take over for a month!

DENbrarians- get out your Kleenex.  The DENbrarian selection for August is:

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

Here’s the Book Trailer   ….soon to be a major motion picture!

Summary from “Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten.”
Our Pinterest resource pinboard is ready.  Sign up to be a DENbrarian and you’ll be added soon as a “Pinner” ASAP!  Click here if you’d like to participate in gathering and sharing resources related to each month’s book selection, or  follow our main DENbrarian Pinterest Board which will contain archives of each month’s materials.
Welcome to our book club- EVERYONE is invited! You do NOT have to be a Library Media Specialist to join this group- …you just have to love great Young Adult books!  We began in April with The One and Only Ivan, then we read Wonder in May.  June brought The Apothecary, and now July is The 5th Wave. All books selected will be in the upper elementary to middle grades range and our group will soon move to to online connections, Skyped author visits, virtual discussions, resource sharing, a student project showcase, and hangouts starting soon.
