Battle of the Books 2019-2020
Battle of the Books is a fun, friendly activity where teams of students read books from a specified list and then compete in a trivia competition based on those books. Students should form a team with at least two other students, but not more than 3 other students. The school competition will be at the end of February and the District/City-wide competition is the 2nd week of March.
Life has suddenly become very difficult for Selwyn Roweson: First Anora broke his heart and decided to marry Farold, then Farold beat him up in front of the entire village, and finally he was accused of murder when Farold was found with a knife--Selwyn’s knife--hilt-deep in his back. Which might not be so bad, except as punishment Selwyn is sealed in the village burial cave with Farold’s moldering corpse, there to await starvation--or worse. Worse comes along quickly in the formof a witch with a fast right hook and the ability to raise Farold from the dead. Selwyn thought he disliked Farold when he was alive, but that was nothing compared to having to work by the dead man’s side as they search for the real killer.
