What is a book that has taught you a lesson?

Special Needs Teacher Julie Stoffer: The Outsiders
“It’s a book about change. It teaches us not to judge a book by its cover so to speak. It teaches us that anyone is capable of change if they are willing to. Plus, it would be a boring world if everyone was alike.”


Nurse Brianna Schenkelberg: Beautiful Mercy
“It taught me how to give myself grace.”



Media Specialist Abby Hendrickson: To Kill a Mockingbird

“One of the many lessons that I feel it teaches is that oftentimes kids can be more insightful than we give them credit for. For example, To Kill a Mockingbird has a lot of different lessons like trying to walk in other people’s shoes. It really highlights caste and wealth.”


Sophomore Amelia Bryant: Outsiders
“I got a different perspective on how others live and not to judge people before I get to know them.”



Sophomore Adalie Carlson: Looking for Alaska by John Green
“It really touches a deeper meaning to mental health especially in women.”



Junior Arohi Banerjee: The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo
“In the book she made people believe she lived her life completely different then how she actually did.”


Junior Eliana Davidson: Crime and Punishment
“I learned from the book Crime and Punishment by Foyder Dostoevsky that the world is never black and white.”


Sophomore Jade Brimm: Because You’ll Never Meet Me by Leah Thomas

“It’s a book about Ollie who is like a hermit, and to start of with he only had one friend in the whole world, and so he got depressed when they stopped hanging out, so to try to get her back he throws a party for her, and during the party they have argument and he realizes they only talked about him and never her.”


Junior Jacob Freland: The Catcher in the Rye  

“It is relatable for teens, and it shows it’s OK not to be OK.”


Junior Sydney Snell: Opium
Opium is my favorite book because in the book the main character finds meaning in life.” 



Junior Alejandro Aries: Wonder
“It shows how people should be treated equally even if they look differently.”



Junior Maddie Hoelscher: The Catcher in the Rye
“It talks about preserving the innocence of childhood.”



Senior Olivia Runkle: Perfectly Fake
Perfectly Fake is my favorite because it taught me that social class doesn’t matter. It only matters who you are on the inside.”
