Boomerang Book Club: April 2019
Did you know that Brave Writer’s Boomerang Book Club discussions are drawn from rich works of fiction that easily fulfill the English credit requirement for literature for a year of high school?
We provide a virtual coffee house—where students gather to freely discuss the novels they read at home. Plus a FREE digital copy of our language arts guide based on the book selection for the month is provided.

April’s selection for the Boomerang Book Club (ages 13-18) is Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury.
A modern classic, Fahrenheit 451 explores a futuristic world where television rules and books burn. Guy Montag is a fireman who starts fires—his job, to burn books and the buildings in which they are found. Through a series of events, Montag becomes disillusioned with the anti-intellectual society in which he lives and begins to question all he knows to be true.
Homeschool students especially need the chance to talk about what they read—yet the busy mother-of-many doesn’t always have time to read those lengthy dense books, let alone discuss them in depth! And that’s where we come in. Teenagers are invited to join our virtual book discussion club, conducted entirely online in the Brave Writer classroom.
Caveat: Please remember that you’re the parent. If you have doubts about the content of a particular book, please check the reviews of the novel or read it for yourself first. Pouch and Boomerang books in particular may include sexuality, graphic language, and mature themes.
