High School summer reading

So I'm on the committee for high school summer reading. We've come up with 3 options for the *entire* high school to read this summer.

Sunrise Over Fallujah by Myers (my first choice)

A Long Way Gone by Beah (I'm reading it and am not sure yet...)

All Souls by MacDonald (I don't even think I want to try this one...)

Go with Sunrise- will have the most general appeal.

Yeah, I'm pushing for it. I don't know if I can handle A Long Way Gone. I'm only on the second CD and it's making me kind of queasy. So much blood...

They've gone for A Long Way Gone much to my great dismay. That was a painful meeting. I just don't know how to deal with these high school teachers -- they treat me like I'm some bug on their picnic blanket. And they act just like their students! The eye rolling alone!

What a day!
