Book Club

Bishop Kelley Book Club is for all students, faculty, and staff members who love talking about a good book. It will meet once a quarter in the library before school.  A book will be selected to read each quarter.  A fun and lively discussion of the book will take place at each meeting. Each reader's experience of the book varies, so all opinions are encouraged and respected.  This is a time when teachers and students can mingle informally outside the classroom to share ideas about popular books. Everyone in the Bishop Kelley learning community is encouraged to join! Refreshments will be served and door prizes will be given away.  Come by the library today and sign-up with Mrs. Parrish.

 Join 4th Quarter Book Club!

Matteo Alacrán was not born; he was harvested.

His DNA came from El Patrón, lord of a country called Opium--a strip of poppy fields lying between the United States and what was once called Mexico. Matt's first cell split and divided inside a petri dish. Then he was placed in the womb of a cow, where he continued the miraculous journey from embryo to fetus to baby. He is a boy now, but most consider him a monster--except for El Patrón.

El Patrón loves Matt as he loves himself, because Matt is himself.  As Matt struggles to understand his existence, he is threatened by a sinister cast of characters, including El Patrón's power-hungry family, and he is surrounded by a dangerous army of bodyguards. Escape is the only chance Matt has to survive. But escape from the Alacrán Estate is no guarantee of freedom, because Matt is marked by his difference in ways he doesn't even suspect.
