Family Book Club: "Book Scavenger" by Jennifer Chambliss Bertman (Chapters 11-21) 
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 11 - 21
1. Have you ever had to start at a new school in the middle of the year? Were you as nervous as Emily?
2. Have you ever had a teacher like Mr. Quisling?
3. Do you think Maddie could be Babbage?
4. Have you read any Edgar Allan Poe stories?
5. Do you think Mr. Remora is an imposter or really Mr. Griswold’s book collector? Would you give him The Gold-Bug to save his job or would you keep it to finish the game first?
