EHMS Readers Vote in Book Bracket Challenge

East Hills Middle School students have been competing in March Madness with a reading twist, rushing to finish books over spring break so they could vote for their final selection. Readers were given eight books and voted bracket-style over the past few months for their favorites. Media Center Paraeducator, Patti Heppler notes, "We started in January to give them plenty of time, and several grades held read-ins at the end of March." The championship bracket books for the fourth, fifth, and sixth grades included "Because of Mr. Terupt" by Rob Buyea and "Crenshaw" by Katherine Applegate. The finalists for seventh and eighth graders were "I Will Always Write Back" by Caitlin Alifirenka, Martin Ganda, et al., and "Refugee" by Alan Gratz. As for the ultimate winner, Heppler predicts that it will be one with a cinderella story of its own because "Kids love an underdog."
