2020-2021 Oregon Readers Choice Award Books

    Sellwood Middle School will be participating in the 2020-2021 Oregon Reader's Choice Awards (ORCA).  It was established in 2010 as a way for the Oregon youth to have a voice in what they believe to be the best books for students.

    There are 3 different divisions, based on appropriate content. If a student reads at least 2 books in any of the divisions, that student is allowed to vote for their favorite one in an election in March. 

     Middle School Division (grades 6-8):
    Be Prepared by Vera Brosgol
    Escape from Aleppo by N.H. Senzai
    Ghost Boys by Jewell Parker Rhodes
    The Last by Katherine Applegate
    The Night Diary by Veera Hiranandani
    No Fixed Address by Susin Nielsen
    Sunny by Jason Reynolds
    Sweep: The Story of a Girl and Her Monster by Jonathan Auxier
