5 Books One School

When the news was announced that the Lenape district would now be offering five books to choose from, there were mixed reactions. Amongst the feelings of apathy and joy, there was a large portion of people who were upset with this new change. The purpose of One Book One School was to choose one book that an entire community could bond over. It gave students an instant topic of conversation with people who would otherwise be strangers. The district decided to offer books at various reading levels and storylines, which would all fit one theme. Although this seems like a logical idea in theory, the results were disappointing. In trying to please more students, the greater purpose of One Book, One School was destroyed.
