Oi Ve. There are a lot of interesting books out there for tween and teenagers and if you’re like me you don’t have time to read each one before approving (or disapproving) for your kiddos. Focus on the Family, in addition to their resourceful website for movie reviews that I have mentioned in a previous post (PluggedIn.com) also has a site for book reviews. LOVE!!
You can check it out here. Quite helpful. They even provide discussion questions. How great it would be to do a book club for the girls and use those discussion questions as jumping off point for deeper discussion! Mentally filing that great idea and placing it in the “To-Do Summer 2015” folder.
And the answer, btw, was “No, not yet” regarding Divergent. Too many complicated themes for an eleven year old.
