FANTASY BoB REPORT
Roxanne & Monica started hosting Fantasy BoB last year at our school, with members of the faculty book club. This year, 6-8 grade students are added to the mix. The student judges’ statements will be added to the comment area for each corresponding Match for Round 1 and Round 2.
The teachers met last Friday after a month of reading and mulling over two (or four) titles each. We had a lively meeting, with much agreement but also vehemently debated opinions.
Here’s the list of our “winners” for Round 1. In cases of multiple readers of the same pairing, the title receiving more votes are declared the winner:
Round 1, Match 1
Freedom Over Me
Round 1, Match 2
When Green Becomes Tomatoes
Round 1, Match 3
The Girl Who Drank the Moon (unanimous)
Round 1, Match 4
March, Book III (unanimous)
Round 1, Match 5
Some Writer (unanimous)
Round 1, Match 6
When The Sea Turned to Silver (unanimous)
Round 1, Match 7
The Lie Tree
Round 1, Match 8
The Sun Is Also A Star (unanimous)
