One Book One School

2018-2019 OBOS Book Choice is: Restart by Gordon Korman

Our theme this year is “Be the Change” and we are thrilled to share that we chose Restart by Gordon Korman as our One Book One School book for this year.  Told in various voices, it is the story of 8th grader Chase, who does not remember falling off the roof; in fact, he does not remember anything about himself. When he gets back to middle school, he begins to learn who he was through the reactions of the other kids--trouble is, he really is not sure he likes the Chase that is being revealed. Can he take the opportunity amnesia has provided and restart his life?
