This past nine weeks, the GHS Book Club read various adaptations on the classic fairy tale Sleeping Beauty.
After reading the YA novel of their choice, students created posters depicting the story’s elements.
Students were then surprised with a trip to Cinemark to watch Disney’s Maleficent 2 movie, also an adaptation on Sleeping Beauty.
The third nine weeks book club will be the historical fiction book, Between Shades of Gray, by Ruta Sepetys.
1941 – Fifteen-year-old Lina Vilkas is arrested by the Soviet secret police and deported to Siberia with her mother and younger brother. Lina fights for her life, vowing that if she survives she will honor her family, and the thousands like hers, by burying her complete story in a jar on Lithuanian soil. Lina’s writings and drawings chronicle her fight for survival, her difficulty accepting help from a Soviet guard she’s supposed to hate, and her struggle to retain faith in mankind amidst the terror.
