November Book Post – Surviving the Applewhites

Well, I hope we can find a few guys who like reading and aren’t busy on Thursdays. Of course, we can always change the day, if that’s the main problem.

Since no one came to the last meeting, does this count as the second book or the first book? Hmm… Anyway, our November book is Surviving the Applewhites, by Stephanie S. Tolan. It’s a Newbery Honor book and like Spirit Bear, it has a troubled boy as it’s main character. He heals and changes in a different way, though.

It’s another good one, and I hope we get a bunch of guys this time to talk about it.

Keep reading!

If you like this book you should read the next book.Guys Read is an Awesome Place for anyone to get together and talk about what we all experienced from our reading. WE THINK EVERYONE NEEDS TO JOIN!!!!!!!!!:):):):):):):)

  2. I’d have to agree with you, Justin and Bob. It was great to have you at the meeting tonight. Orpal, his dad and brother, Mr. F, and Mr. H, too. It was like a real book club! Thank goodness.

    I’m glad you liked the book so much. If you think of anything else you forgot to say abut it, this is the place to write it!

    By the way, I think those gulab jamun were so sugary they gave me a stomach ache. Good though!

    See everyone next month! Don’t forget your assignment! Find us some new members!

  3. It was an excellent book that used humor to drive the storyline along with the characters. The author Tolan created great characters that draw you in on several different levels. It made me want to learn more about each of them.
    The way the book went from the point of view of the two main characters throughout the book reminded me of the book “Flipped.” I would recommend this book to anyone of any age.

    I think they could write a sequel to this and bring in another character to their educational setting :)

    Great choice Mr. S.

  4. Flipped is a really fun book. It takes the alternating viewpoints idea to the extreme. I loved seeing how each character put more or less emphasis on different aspects of the same situation.

    Another great book like that is The Wanderer, one of my favorites.
