Family Book Club: "Book Scavenger" by Jennifer Chambliss Bertman (Chapters 1-10) 
Family Book Club

Welcome to Family Book Club! This is an exciting club for families who love to read and is appropriate for ages 8-15. The books chosen are always within the 3rd-6th grade level but both younger and older kids have enjoyed them! If your child is younger, I encourage the family to read the book aloud together or listen to the audiobook (if available)!

This month we are reading "Book Scavenger" by Jennifer Chambliss Bertman. When Emily moves to San Francisco, home of her literary hero Garrison Griswold, she soon becomes involved with a mystery involving one of his books. With the help of her new friend, James, they must solve puzzles in order to find the hidden prize but must be beware of others after the same thing! 
Please note: There is gun violence in chapters 1 & 39. The details Edgar Allan Poe’s short horror story, "The Black Cat", is described in chapter 20.  
Genre: MYSTERY.

Chapters 1 - 10
1. Have you ever moved to a new house? Have you ever moved to a different state? Did you think of your move (local or not) as a new adventure or were you less than happy about it?
2. Would you rather meet the Willy Wonka of candy-making or, as Emily compares Garrison Griswold, the Willy Wonka of book publishing? 
3. If you were a Book Scavenger, what name would you use on your cards?
4. When Matthew went down into the BART station, did you expect them to find The Gold-Bug? What do you think will happen now that they have it?
5. Would you participate in the Book Scavenger game if it were real? I know I would!
Next week read chapters 11-21!
