What 8th Graders Are Reading (In 2014)

Every year we like to go to our friend,  Erin Ocon, and ask her eighth-grade students  in Hillsboro, Oregon to recommend books to us that they’re currently reading.  Here’s this year’s crop of  thoughtful essays on a recently-read book.

Check back daily for a new recommendation and insight from one of these young reader/writers.
