Book 1 blog: Waves

Reading changed in our class this semester. Students started choosing what to read. It was good, but it brought a halt to our online discussions. 

Until today, that is, when it occurred to me that this blog would be a great spot for students to recommend (or warn against) the books they'd read, as well as to go on and get recommendations for their next book. 

Purely for my own convenience, I'm splitting this into three posts - one for each class. This one is for Waves.

Waves, your mission is to write a post about the first book you read, responding to the following prompts:
  1. Write what you think another 11th grade reader will find most interesting about this book.
  2. Write what you think they will find most frustrating about this book.
  3. Write a "golden line" from the book (if the golden line contains a spoiler, please put a warning in bold above it).
