The competition is very fun because, yes it gets competitive. It's not a competition against anyone but yourself. You want to get 50 questions right out of 75 for a blue ribbon. Though there is another team in the room answering questions with you, it doesn't hurt you if they are answering all of theirs right. Except, if they answer wrong, you have a chance to answer it and win a point for your team.
Tomorrow is the big day. The list can be found on my challenges page, and they are books that would actually pique a teen's interest. But, I'm such a letdown to the team. I have read Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs this year, but I forget most of what happened. And I read If I Stay by Gale Forman a few years ago. Does it count that I saw the The Book Thief movie?
Well, here's to hoping that the freshmen read the entire list because I sure won't be a big contributor.
