2013 Frannies: The 8B Class Award

I can’t believe we’ve reached the halfway point of the 2013 Frannies. It feels like we’ve only just begun. . .but anyway. There are awards to be handed out. Today, we look at the final homeroom award: the 8B Class Book Award.

8B is a group of 20 young ladies who, despite their occasional protests, love to read. In particular, they love contemporary realistic fiction. Some of them enjoy their fantasy and dystopian and the occasional novel-in-verse, but by and large, they’re pretty committed to the realistic stuff. They are also a very mature group of readers — both with their reading ability and their book choices. Their award winners reflect their tastes and their maturity.

There is one 8B Class Honor Book:

Stealing Parker

Stealing Parker by Miranda Kenneally

Miranda Kenneally has become a recent favorite of the students, with many of them passing around Catching Jordan. I’m pretty certain that at one point, we’ve had all the public library’s copies of her books in my classroom.

And now, the 8B Class Book Award Winner:


The Fault in Our Stars by John Green!

There was no book more widely enjoyed by the 8B crowd than The Fault in Our Stars. Let’s see what they have to say:

“It made me think differently about the world and about people with cancer.”

“This book is a great realistic fiction book! I recommend everyone to read it.”

“I really like this book!”

Mr. Green, we are honored to grant you this award. We will keep it in our classroom for safekeeping until you are able to pick it up.
