Teen Think Tank (6th - 12th Grade): Battle of the Books: Realistic Fiction/Comedy

Teen Think Tank

Welcome to week five of Summer Reading. Be sure to track your reading to earn prizes! Are You Ready??? It's time for Jacksonville Public Library's second annual Battle of the Books! Battle of the Books is an exciting competition in which you read books across four categories as they compete to be the best. During each program in June and July, two books will compete from one category – nonfiction, realistic fiction/comedy, sci-fi/fantasy, and graphic novels. Teens will compete in Kahoot trivia challenges on the books and debate which book is the winner. In early August, a finale program will crown the winner and celebrate all of the summer’s books.
