Looking Back #24: A Book Scavenger-themed library sleepover!
I’m counting down to the publication of The Unbreakable Code with highlights from the past two years since Book Scavenger was published. So much has happened in such a short time, and I’ve been so busy trying to keep up, that I’ve neglected to share many of the big and small moments. So here we go, in no particular order . . .

Earlier this year I received an email from a librarian who coordinates an annual “Bring on the Books” event for five schools in her area. The fifth graders in this program are challenged to read as many books as they would like from a list of 30 titles, and this year Book Scavenger was one of those titles. As a reward for the students who read all 30 books, they hold a sleepover in the school library with fun games and activities. I was honored to learn the theme for this year’s sleepover was Book Scavenger. I Skyped with these great readers, and after our video chat their librarian organized a book hunt around their school, which looked like so much fun!
