October 29,2012-The 6th meet of the Young Adult Battle of the Books was held at Wheaton Public Library. We were against Monroe Middle School and Hadley Middle School – Black.
Team B competed at the first round and Team C (my team) competed at the second.
We thought we were going to WIN but, we were all wrong!
This question is were we all got crooked up in round 2: In the book Kira-Kira by Cynthia Kadohata, what does the word “Itchiro” means?
a. first son/born b. beautiful c. eternal
We weren’t sure what the answer was even if we all read this book! So, we took a guess and we said “eternal” but, it was really “first son/born”!
We were disappointed, Monroe Middle School was 4 points ahead of us :(.
Monroe Middle School- 94 points
Franklin Middle School– 90 points
Hadley Middle School (black)- 75 points
The next battle with us (Franklin Middle School) will be on November 6…
