Read and discuss the book, Mindset: The New Psychology of Success by Carol S. Dweck.
"If parents want to give their children a gift, the best thing they can do is to teach their children to love challenges, be intrigued by mistakes, enjoy effort, and keep on learning. That way, their children don’t have to be slaves of praise. They will have a lifelong way to build and repair their own confidence.”

Poignant and mentally stimulating, this book is a coming-of-age story is told in the form of Charlie, the main character, writing anonymous letters to someone we do not know. This book will make you feel good at some parts, think a lot, and grow to love the characters. May not be for the faint of heart, as it covers controversial topics.  Shaker Heights Public Library Catalog

I loved all three books I read!!!! Silver shadows was better than I'd hoped but a little too short. I loved the wedding. Sydney's rescue and the rance were just perfect.
As for Fangirl I wish the Simon Snow books were real and I love how Cafh learns to find her way in life.   Shaker Heights Public Library Catalog
