OBOB – bob – bobbing along

16 Aug

One of my annual summer goals is to read the OBOB books for the upcoming season. I like to have a general understanding of each book so I can be a better coach.

Here is the 2018-19 list. I have read the titles in bold.

6th to 8th Grade Division

  • Absolutely Truly by Heather Vogel Frederick
  • Avenging the Owl by Melissa Hart
  • The Body in the Woods by April Henry
  • Cryptid Hunters by Roland Smith
  • Doll Bones by Holly Black
  • The Gauntlet by Karuna Riazi
  • Ghost by Jason Reynolds
  • I Will Always Write Back by Caitlin Alifirenka & Martin Ganda
  • The Luck Uglies by Paul Durham
  • My Seventh-Grade Life in Tights by Brooks Benjamin
  • Restart by Gordon Korman
  • Revenge of the Witch by Joseph Delaney
  • Small as an Elephant by Jennifer Richard Jacobson
  • The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan
  • The Wishing Spell by Chris Colfer
  • Wolf Hollow by Lauren Wolk

It’s been a weird sort of summer – and short – so I have only reached 50%. Fortunately, I don’t start talking to kids about it until October and the battles don’t begin until January, so I still have ample time to read the other 50%.
