Wreath In College

Wreath Willis Series, Book 3

The Big Easy, a roommate nightmare and campus crime. Wreath needs new survival skills to get through her first semester at college. When Wreath Willis receives a last-minute scholarship to a university in New Orleans--a city she's never even visited--she finds the adventure more challenging than her solitary life in the junkyard. Everyone she loves is back in Landry--and it seems like they're getting along just fine without her. Now Wreath isn't sure where she fits in. Between her opinionated roommate and a rich upperclassman who seems way out of her league, she's forced to examine her past--and her future. Includes Book-Club and Classroom Discussion Guide. Other books in the series: Wreath, A Girl, which launched the series, is a two-time Pulpwood Queens Book Club Teen Book of the Year. Lesson plans, developed by a middle-school teacher, are available free and include tips on writing and ways to integrate Wreath's story with current events. Wreath, In Summer is the second in the series and also includes discussion questions. A YA novel with strong crossover appeal.
