One Book One River Hill

This year's community read will be The Book of Unknown Americans, by Cristina Henriquez.  This is a wonderful character driven young adult novel that focuses on the dreams and love story of two families living in Delaware. These voices are interlaced with additional tales of their neighbors which gives a rich context to the ideas of love, guilt, hopes and fears that pervade the story. A wonderful portrait of what it means to be an American both to those of us born here, and those of us who aren't. 

The idea behind One Book One River Hill is to build community through a shared reading experience. Ms. Curry, who leads this organization, would like to encourage everyone in our community (parents, students, staff) to read this book and partake in some of the bookish fun we will put together. More information is on the Media Center webpage.  Students may purchase the book at cost for $13, or check it out of the school library.
