The Scorpio Races - A Must Read

I just read The Scorpio Races and I can't wait to share it with DHS students!  It's a fantastic story, complete with a little violence, romance, and bullying all in one book.  Gutsy characters with a splash of mythical creatures (Cappail Uisce--water horses), the story was riveting.  Just consider the opening line:
It's the first day of November and so, today, someone will die.
With an opener like that it has to be good!

I do have to warn though, the story is slow to get into. But as I reflect back over the beginning, I  realize it helped me understand Sean and Puck as individuals in the story.  Don't let my warning put you off--this book is fantastic!!
