My team is considering reading "Flutter" with our next unit as it is deep in symbolism and we want to tackle some of those deeper literary elements in our next unit--things like flashback and foreshadowing and symbols. I read it and liked it but wasn't "wowed" by it. That being said, I read "Tiger Rising" 3 times on my own and didn't really ever like it but when I shared it with my students, they got SO into it! We STILL talk about it today . . .
So--what books are on your "to read" list right now? Do you have any books that are full of great literary elements that I might want to add to my stack?
