The back and forth of the two authors’ analysis of the assortment of games discussed in this book was delightful to read. Each had insight to offer – a lot with a bit of humor – as he or she explained how each game is played and what we as a society can learn from it. What a great book!

The Weekend Bucket List by Mia Kerick

Grades 9 – 12weekend bucket list.jpg

Cady LaBrie and Cooper Murphy are high school seniors and best friends who are the definition of what some would call “goody-two shoes.” They’ve always followed the rules and would prefer to stay in on a Friday night instead of looking for trouble. So, they decide to do all the things they’ve missed out on over the last four years and create a bucket list of things to complete in one weekend before they graduate. On top of it all, neither one has admitted that they have feelings for the other. Will it be the weekend of their lives or a complete disaster?
