Pizza & Pages
Middle School Book Club
Pizza & Pages pretty much says it all. You read the book and I bring the pizza. This is a book club for middle schoolers in grades 6-8. So if you like reading, have an opinion…and an appetite-this is the book club for you!
Our next meeting is Wednesday, June 3rd from 4 to 5 pm.
We’re reading The True Meaning of Smekday by Adam Rex.
“It all starts with a school essay.
Twelve-year-old Gratuity “Tip” Tucci is assigned to write five pages on “The True Meaning of Smekday” for the National Time Capsule contest, and she’s not sure where to begin: when her mom started telling everyone about the messages aliens were sending through a mole on the back of her neck? Maybe on Christmas Eve, when huge, bizarre spaceships descended to Earth, and aliens-called the Boov-abducted her mother? Or when the Boov declared Earth a colony, renamed it “Smekland” (in honor of glorious Captain Smek), and forced all Americans to relocate to Florida via rocketpod?
Gratuity’s story is much, much more bigger than the assignment. It involves her unlikely friendship with a renegade Boov mechanic named J.Lo, a futile journey south to find Gratuity’s mother at the Happy Mouse Kingdom, a cross-country road trip in a hovercar called Slushious, and an outrageous plan to save Earth from yet another alien invasion.”
