(Also, here’s a printable version of our More School Stories booklist, for you to take to the library or bookstore — or show to your new teacher and see if you can get extra credit.)

If you’ve read any of these, send in your book review. Or send in a review of your favorite school story book.

And don’t forget our previous school story recommendations from last fall!

UPDATE 9/20/11: We revealed the answer to our More School Stories Mystery Book Theater in the “Rule the School” Podcast, so take a listen if you want to know the answer. Or just tune in if you want to hear Karen’s comedy attempt fails. You know, the usual.
