It’s Editors’ Picks Week here at Scholastic, and we’re so excited to learn about our editors’ favorite reads! Their hard work and dedication to reading definitely translates into the catalogs that they work on, and we can’t wait to hear about their top five favorites for this month.
We’re doing things a little differently this time and kicking off with one of our older Book Clubs, TAB. Here are some fantastic reads chosen by the editor of TAB, Trevor Ingerson.
Endangered by Eliot Schrefer
This 2012 National Book Award Finalist is not only poignant, it is a nonstop thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat. Once you finish, you’ll want to have everyone you know read it!
Amulet #5: Prince of the Elves Kazu Kibuishi
The newest installment in the Amulet series does not disappoint. If you haven’t read this series yet, get on it! It’s a must-read for anyone who loves graphic novels.
Trash by Andy Mulligan
This suspenseful thriller entertains readers while it shines a light on the important but not so commonly addressed topic of poverty. Trash is one book you won’t want to dispose of.
Years of Dust Albert Marrin
A fascinating look at the Dust Bowl with amazing photographs and text that make your throat dry just reading it. A perfect companion to Karen Hesse’s Out of the Dust.
Choke Diana López
Written by a teacher who saw the dangers of a game her students were playing, Choke is simultaneously enlightening and shocking. An important and mature book that deals with peer pressure, friendship, and identity.
