Middle School Book Club ‘Wild Riders!’ Talks to Author Jess Rothenberg

How often do Middle Schoolers get to interview the author of their favorite book? Poly Prep’s Grades 6-8 book club, Wild Readers!, just read The Kingdom by Jess Rothenberg. The story, told through traditional prose, court testimony, and interviews, depicts a fantastical theme park staffed by beautiful androids. When one of the androids is accused of murder, dark secrets surface.

Rothenberg joined the book club via Google Hangouts to answer their questions about the book. Club advisor Elaine Levia had the students prepare questions in advance. and so a lively conversation ensued. <INSERT QUOTE HERE from a kid about the event, or from Elaine about how the kids responded>
