Welcome, readers!

Battle of the Books is a competitive team of 6-8th grade students who read a list of 22 young adult books and compete against other schools by answering detailed questions. This club is for bibliophiles only! If you love reading and the spirit of competition, this is the perfect club for you!

We compete at the county level against Rosman Middle in late February/early March* and the winning team

advances to WNC Regionals to represent Transylvania county.

*January 2021 Update: Battle of the Books competitions have been cancelled at the state and regional levels due to the inability to meet safely and adhere to Covid protocols. We will start up again in the Fall of 2021.

Fall Semester Meetings will begin in September of 2021. Look for info from your ELA teachers or

So what is BoB?

After reading books on the list and memorizing the titles and authors, students prepare for competition by answering questions that begin with the phrase: "In which book...?" We compete against RMS at the county level, and the winner of that contest will advance to Regionals in the early Spring.

Caught you READING!
