Brewster Girl Scout, Jacqueline Carey, recently began a Gold Award Project named “Book Banter.” Book Banter will be a teen book review website that will contain reviews of books made by members of our local community. The Girl Scout Gold Award, the highest award a Girl Scout can earn, combines leadership development, career exploration and community service. It culminates in an 80-hour leadership project that each girl plans and executes according to her own interests and passions.
“I created Book Banter because I am an avid reader. I also love to share my views with others on the books I’ve read.” explains Jacqueline, “I am often unsure what to read next, and I know others with similar problems. I find books to read by asking people about their most beloved books. I made this project to help people find books to enjoy and give people a place to share books they would recommend.”
Jacqueline is reaching out to the community to submit short reviews on their favorite young adult books. Book reviews can be submitted online at http://abookbanter.wix.com/onlinereviews
. Book reviews will also be used to produce physical books at both Brewster and Patterson Libraries.
