Book Challenge-Book#3

I read another whole chapter book today! 🙂 Well, it was a short one and a very easy read. “Just Juice” by Karen Hesse (am I getting stuck on her books????) is about a girl and her extremely poor family trying to save their house which is going to be sold for backtaxes. There is also a sidebar conflict (which ends up being the main one) with Juice not being able to read. Very heart-touching story which places a huge importance on the notion of reading. 🙂 This will definitely be on my list to recommend to my 6th graders-maybe it will enlighten them about the importance of being able to read. 🙂
