Here is a little bit more about it: (From the publisher and being reviewed for grades 8 and up)

Perfect for fans of The Book Thief and Code Name Verity, New York Times bestselling author Michael Grant unleashes an epic, genre-bending, and transformative new series that reimagines World War II with girl soldiers fighting on the front lines.

World War II, 1942. A court decision makes women subject to the draft and eligible for service. The unproven American army is going up against the greatest fighting force ever assembled, the armed forces of Nazi Germany.

Three girls sign up to fight. Rio Richlin, Frangie Marr, and Rainy Schulterman are average girls, girls with dreams and aspirations, at the start of their lives, at the start of their loves. Each has her own reasons for volunteering: Rio fights to honor her sister; Frangie needs money for her family; Rainy wants to kill Germans. For the first time they leave behind their homes and families—to go to war.

These three daring young women will play their parts in the war to defeat evil and save the human race. As the fate of the world hangs in the balance, they will discover the roles that define them on the front lines. They will fight the greatest war the world has ever known.

Holidays and Reading

With the long holiday coming up, many of the readers at Trent will run out of books by the first Sunday. As wonderful as the Frisco Public Library is, I know that we do not want to spend our time going back and forth for two weeks.

I have a fix! There are many eBooks and eAudio books to choose from on Overdrive and MackinVia. And even better..these are FREE!!! Both are apps that are free from all App Stores. Download it and start reading. The great thing is that the students can check in books when they are done and then checkout again. Here is the login information:

Lost Books

When we get back from break, I will be sending the first round of Lost slips to students. These will be send to students who have had a book overdue since September and October. If they have the book, please have them bring it back. If not, they will need to go ahead and pay for it. I will give payment information to the students.

Want to see what they have out and when it was due? Have them long in here.
