Don’t judge a book by it’s cover, sometimes we as readers get hung up on what a book looks like, and simply leave it on the shelf. Maybe the artist did not do a good job, or maybe the font simply is not your liking, but what if a student is missing out on a great book simply because it was “attractive enough”. Students will now go on a “blind date” with a book. Using the optional book list provided, pick a book based solely on its summary and begin “dating”.
