Book Wars: Westland Middle School
What is Book Wars?
Book Wars is a team book trivia competition. Students work in teams throughout the
year in preparation for the Book Wars Completion Day which will be held on April
6th, 2018 from approximately 9:30am to 2:30pm , at Silver Creek Middle School.
This year 27 middle schools will be competing for the honor of being named Book Wars
Champions and taking the Book Wars Cup to their school’s trophy case.
● There will be three teams (one for each grade level), with up to 5 students per
team. Teams will meet about twice monthly during STAR or lunch in the library
to discuss the books, ask questions, hangout and have fun!
● Team members will need to commit to read the same ten books as all the other
kids in MCPS participating in Book Wars between October and April. See
attached for the list of books.
● The books cover a variety of genres and characters. They are all available to
borrow from our school, and approved for middle school readers.
● Do you like to read things outside of your favorite genre? That’s a must.
● Think about your interest level. Think about your time commitments. Your
teammates need to be able to count on you!
● If you incur any suspensions or become academically ineligible, you will not be
able to participate in Book Wars.
● The winning team will be awarded a prize or trophy, etc. for the school.
● Judges will also be on hand to award prizes for team unity, tee shirt design, and
