Book Club Picks - Back to School

Hi y'all!  It's September (and holy crap where on earth did the rest of 2016 go?!)  Kids are back to school, and every parent who doesn't homeschool is heaving a collective sigh of relief right about now!  But, we're not here to talk about kids - we're here to talk about books!  And in the spirit of school and reading, here are some books that relate to school in some way that you all just HAVE to read in your book clubs.  Have fun!

 The Outsiders - S.E. Hinton 
How could one resist this classic of drama, rivalry, and a little schooling between gangs.  Read it (if you haven't already.)  There's so much for any book club to talk about.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone - J.K. Rowling
Technically a kids book, but still - who could resist the book that started it all?!  Book clubs with readers of any age are sure to delight in the back to school antics of Harry and Friends.

Stargirl - Jerry Spinelli
This angsty book about a weird girl in a school full of kids who deem themselves normal is the perfect back to school book.  Read it for your book club, then share it with your teens!  Everyone will love it.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower - Stephen Chbosky 
This book deals with some pretty heavy shit (including teen suicide) but it's a must read on the school book list.  Don't be fooled by how short this book is - there is more than enough going on to keep your book club talking.
