We are reading the book Orbiting Jupiter for the global read aloud. It is about a family bringing a kid named Joseph in as a foster child. He has a very interesting background, but you need to read the book to find out. It would be hard to have the same background as him, because his life has been very hard.
At first, I didn't really think the GRA would be that amusing. It stayed that way through the beginning of the book. As we got going I was starting to really like the book. There are some very intense moments in the book. I really enjoy connecting with other schools around the world. You can here their perspective on the book, and share yours with them. I encourage you to do the global read aloud.
