  1. 1. Crestwood Middle School Library New Books One is JUST RIGHT for you!
  2. 2. Sure Signs of Crazy by Karen Harrington Sarah’s mother is mentally unbalanced and the girl thinks she will be crazy just like her mother. Sarah spends the summer looking for signs of being like her crazy mother or becoming like her alcoholic father.
  3. 3. Sure Signs of Crazy by Karen Harrington Sarah’s loves to read and to write. Both prove to be just what she needs to face the challenges of growing up, falling in love, and taking care of the Plant she talks to as her best friend. Does this means she’s crazy, too?
  4. 4. Sure Signs of Crazy by Karen Harrington Thought provoking quotations “Most people don’t know what they think until they writing it down. Don’t you want to know what you think?” (p.39) “It’s funny how you don’t know you’re in pieces until someone hugs you together.” (p.140)
  5. 5. The Saturday Boy by David Fleming Eleven-year-old Derek Lamb likes superhero comic books, Saturday morning cartoons and Chocolate Ka-Blams. He’d gladly trade all of these things to have his father come home Afghanistan where he pilots Apache helicopters for the US Army.
  6. 6. The Saturday Boy by David Fleming Provocative Questions • How long before his classmates forget Derek waited in the rain to catch the bus to school on a Saturday? • Why is Derek’s neighbor his best friend at home and the bully who picks on him at school?
  7. 7. The Saturday Boy by David Fleming Being good at building model airplanes and drawing superheroes just wasn’t enough. Maybe when Derek embraces a girl in the school play the guys will stop teasing him.
  8. 8. Lara’s Gift by Anne Marie O’Brien An intriguing historical novel about Russians who breed special dogs to hunt wolves!
  9. 9. Lara’s Gift by Anne Marie O’Brien • So what’s historical fiction? • Seems like contradictory terms. • History is factual; fiction need not be. • Historical fiction a made up story based on real people, places and events.
  10. 10. Russian Nobles Treasured Borsoi Dogs Lara’s Gift by Anne Marie O’Brien Image Lara’s father, the Count’s Kennel Master, breeds championship borsoi dogs. Kara loves the work and eagerly looks forward to following in his footsteps! But will a girl become Kennel Master when she has a brother who should inherit this role? Learn a little Russian vocabulary as you read about Lara’s gift which seals her fate.
