Club Rules:
Share at least one thought about the book of the week, be respectful of others so they can do the same, and enjoy the time.
Students who read and attend the discussion for one book will be eligible for one of the five free copies of the next book!
You do not need to attend all meetings or meetings in a row to join.  Each discussion is about a different book, so choose books that interest you.
Food in the library is allowed at lunch for the book club only as long as it doesn't become a mess.

Evergreen YA Award and Voting:
All selections are 2012 Evergreen Young Adult Book Award Nominees. Our school library has at least 1 copy per title for checkout, sometimes 5 unless it's available on one of our 5 Kindles, which students may check out with a permission form. Our public library has more.  All titles are available in paperback if you feel like shopping for one.
The Evergreen Award is given by the King County Library System which selects nominations based in interest and variety from teen recommendations.  The winner is selected by teen readers.  The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins was the winner from 2011.
Vote for your favorite by March 15th with a library ballot or online. You must have read at least 2 books on the list to vote for a favorite; all high school students are eligible.
UPDATE: congratulations to The Maze Runner by James Dashner. 2012 Evergreen Award winner as voted by students and educators around Washington State!
