Read Aloud Together from Concord Middle School’s Big 6 List

The Concord Free Public Library invites middle schoolers to read aloud together in a fun, supportive environment. The program will take place every Friday at 11 am – 12 pm, starting June 26. The group will focus on the Concord Middle School’s Big 6 Recommended Reading List.
The first book that the group will read together is Sal & Gabi Break the Universe by Carlos Hernandez. This brilliant sci-fi romp with Cuban influence poses this question: What would you do if you had the power to reach through time and space and retrieve anything you want, including your mother, who is no longer living (in this universe, anyway)? A sassy entropy sweeper, a documentary about wedgies, a principal who wears a Venetian bauta mask, and heaping platefuls of Cuban food are just some of the delights that await in his mind-blowing novel gift-wrapped in love and laughter.
Students can instantly download this title on hoopla with a Minuteman Library Card.
