Hanging with the awesome students at BDHS in Indianapolis, along with the SERIOUSLY AMAZINGLY TALENTED Coe Booth, Ellen Schreiber, and Jason Reynolds.
Asking lots of questions. Getting lots of answers!
“Do you see yourselves in books?”
“No, the girls are always skinny and pretty and perfect.”
“People in books are so athletic. They can do 14 things. I can’t do that stuff!”
“I have to ignore a lot of stuff so I can put myself in the story.”
“Yeah, sometimes. But really I want to learn about other people and places.”
“Where’s the bathroom?”
“Turn left at the fridge!”
Can’t ask for a better host school, or hostess. Cathy Hicks-Brooks is awesome, and I would pay real money to have her energy! My student helper Danielle is also wonderful.
