Have you ever been thrown into a situation where you feel like you don't quite belong? In a new place, with new people, and new adventures waiting for you? Right when you feel like you will never make it in this strange new place, a new friend comes along and helps you along the way and suddenly you are not only navigating this strange landscape, but thriving in it! Welcome to 6th Grade CREATE where we will be creating our own "fish out of water" stories like our mentor novels: the graphic novel version of "The Jungle Book" and the 2009 Newbery Medal Winner "The Graveyard Book."
