Beyond the Book: Mars Evacuees - Online
Beyond the Book is a new book club for 3rd through 5th graders! Each meeting will feature a book selection that everyone reads in advance, and then we will meet via Zoom to talk about the book and go beyond the text to learn more about the people, places, and issues we read about.
The book for the August 3rd meeting will be Mars Evacuees by Sophia McDougall. This book is available for immediate download from Hoopla.
A Zoom link will be sent the day before the class begins to those who register.
About the book:
From bestselling UK author Sophia McDougall comes one fresh and funny adventure-filled tween debut about a group of kids evacuated to Mars! Perfect for fans of Artemis Fowl, this laugh-out-loud series is packed with nonstop fun. When Earth comes under attack by aliens, hilarious heroine Alice Dare and a select group of kids are sent to Mars. But things get very strange when the adults disappear into thin air, the kids face down an alien named Thsaaa, and Alice and her friends must save the galaxy! For when plucky twelve-year-old Alice Dare learns she's being taken out of the Muckling Abbott School for Girls and sent to another planet, no one knows what to expect. This is one wild ride that will have kids chuckling the whole way through.
