BBN's top 10 favorite summer reads

After a highly scholastic, scientific, rigorous survey conducted in advisory group meetings, the results of what the BBN Upper School students thought about summer reading has been tallied.  34 of 51 advisory groups participated and gave us their feedback.  They indicated that between all groups, 101 books from the summer reading list were enjoyed!  The top 10 (more like top 17 due to a ten-way tie...) are below.  Congratulations to both Ms. Payne and Ms. Makrauer's advisory groups, the enviable winners of breakfast provided by the librarians!
