Yes, the ARC’s are back. What’s an ARC you ask? It’s an Advanced Reader Copy. What does that mean? It means we’re getting books in DRAFT format; as in before they are published!!! If you are a literary lover, this is the book club for you!
You read them and tell Ms. Becky what you think. Did you like it? Was it an all-nighter? A snoozer? Come on in and grab one before the meeting. Then eat home made treats while giving a short summary and your opinion on the book. It’s simple and fun (and you aren’t graded!) Ms. Becky sometimes picks one review (if they are really good) to send back to the publisher. Who knows, maybe someday you’ll be the “teen reviewer” quoted on the book jacket.
For the second half of our meeting we talk a about all of the books you really loved (or hated). You get some great recommendations from other teens ARC or otherwise so don’t miss out!
