Tween Book Group Reads The Boy Who Dared for February 9th


Tween Book Group Reads "The Boy Who Dared" for February 9, 2017
Page Turners, our book group for tweens in grades 6-8, is reading The Boy Who Dared by Susan Campbell Bartletti for their get-together on Thursday, February 9th @ 2:30PM.  The group begins with an after school snack, followed by a discussion of the book, and a short activity.

Transportation is available from LMS via bus #3 at the regular dismissal time.

Copies of the book are available in the upper-level Teen area and the lower- levelYoung Readers’ Room.

About the Book
When 16-year-old Helmut Hubner listens to the BBC news on an illegal short-wave radio, he quickly discovers Germany is lying to the people. But when he tries to expose the truth with leaflets, he's tried for treason. Sentenced to death and waiting in a jail cell, Helmut's story emerges in a series of flashbacks that show his growth from a naive child caught up in the patriotism of the times , to a sensitive and mature young man who thinks for himself.
