Here’s what we’re reading in June in the Boomerang Book Club: Lord of the Flies, William Golding. Penguin Books Reissue Edition, 2003. 224 pages.

Before The Hunger Games, there was Lord of the Flies. A group of schoolboys is stranded on a deserted island after a plane crash. The lure of adventure free of adult supervision quickly gives way to fear as the boys start to turn on each other. Labeled a parable, an allegory, a myth, a morality tale, a parody, a political treatise, even a vision of the apocalypse, Lord of the Flies has established itself as a true classic.

Save the Date:

June 1, 2020 Noon Eastern

We’re excited to get to know you and your kids this summer! Jump in!

Let’s help you launch a great summer of writing and reading with our Brave Writer online classes.

People ask me all the time which class they should take. 

Here’s the skinny:

  • If you are new to Brave Writer and you want to get oriented to being your child’s writing coach, or you have a reluctant writer under 14—start with The Writer’s Jungle Online.
  • If you have a high school student: start with a Movie Discussion Club for teens who hate writing. Start with Essay Prep for teens who are willing to write. 
  • If you want to enroll lots of kids at once for a single price, check out our family classes. Our summer family class is Groovy Grammar Workshop.
  • If you have a willing writer, look at the class descriptions with your child and let that child have a say in which class he or she takes.

All Summer Online Classes

Open for Registration Noon Eastern on June 1

Each Friday for the last month we’ve shared simple ideas to engage with the world outside (we suggested picking one a week to try).

Our Brave Writer families have watched clouds roll by, turned over rocks, and built fairy houses.

The twenty nature prompts can continue to inspire as you practice the Brave Writer Lifestyle throughout the year.

Here’s the complete list (click image to enlarge).

Boomerang Book Club: May 2020

Boomerang Book Club

The Boomerang Book Club (for teens) provides an online forum for students to freely discuss the novels they read at home. 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!

Let Brave Writer help. These book discussions are drawn from rich works of fiction that will easily fulfill the English credit requirement for literature for a year of high school.

Teenagers are invited to join our virtual book discussion club, conducted entirely online in the Brave Writer classroom.

What we’re discussing in May: The Wednesday Wars, Gary D. Schmidt. Clarion Books Reprint Edition, 2009. 272 pages.

The Wednesday Wars, a Newbery Honor-winning novel, takes readers on a comical and often touching, trip through seventh grade in the late 1960s. Will Holling Hoodhood survive the trials of cream puffs, baseball heroes, enraged rats, and, unexpectedly, William Shakespeare and yellow tights? With the Vietnam war in the backdrop, Holling does his best to dig deep for the courage to face each challenge thrown his way. Along the way, he realizes motivation to move forward can come from people he never thought could help and places he never thought to look.
