Family Book Club: "Book Scavenger" by Jennifer Chambliss Bertman & August Preview 
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 33 -42
1. Even though Maddie is unpleasant, was it right for Emily and James to trick her?
2. I never trusted Mr. Remora. Did you?
3. Did you expect Hollister to be in on everything? I had wondered when Emily and James saw him in places they were also searching.
4. Did you like that this ended up being a treasure hunt?
5. What did you think of the book?
