Trends – East Pictou Middle School

There is no clear leader yet at East Pictou Middle School Library (grade 7-9). Out of the 57 nominations received, Ms. MacLellan reported that a wide range of books were nominated and only three titles received two nominations. The front-runners are:

Each Little Bird That Sings by Deborah Wiles

10-year-old Comfort Snowberger is comfortable with death, as her family owns a funeral home. However, she is unprepared for a string of tragic accidents that follows the funeral of her beloved great-great-aunt.

Reasons for nomination:

– It’s a really funny book but sad. My favourite book.
– It’s funny and a great book to relate to at our age!




The Ersatz Elevator (A Series of Unfortunate Events, Book 6) by Lemony Snicket

In the sixth installment of A Series of Unfortunate Events, the evil Count Olaf discovers the Baudelaire orphans’ hideout in Esmé and Jerome Squalor’s 71 bedroom penthouse and tries anew to steal their family fortune.

 Reasons for nomination:

– It’s the best book I ever read.
– It’s very interesting.




Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard

Spencer, Aria, Emily, Hannah, and Allison were best friends in grade 7 – until Allison mysteriously disappeared. A few years later they start receiving messages from “A,” which contain secrets about each girl that only Allison would know.

Reasons for nomination:

– It’s a good book!
– I liked how the author wrote it




UPDATE: Ms. MacLellan continues to receive nominations every day, and the results have changed. The number one book at EPMS is currently The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton with 15 nominations, and Pretty Little Liars has moved up to second place with 5 nominations. These results will likely change again by the end of the week!

What do you think about the books nominated at EPMS?
