Upper Elementary: UE Summer Reading 2023

Website for the GCDS Libraries

2023 One School, One Book

This summer all UE students & faculty will read Save Me A Seat by Sarah Weeks & Gita Varadarajan.

A new friend could be sitting right next to you.

Joe and Ravi might be from very different places, but they're both stuck in the same place: school. Joe's lived in the same town all his life, and was doing just fine until his best friends moved away and left him on his own. Ravi's family just moved to America from India, and he's finding it pretty hard to figure out where he fits in. Joe and Ravi don't think they have anything in common — but they both struggle to navigate family, friendships and the class bully over the course of a single crazy week.

Greenwich Public Library offers a digital eBook copy here and an audiobook copy here. GCDS families can obtain a Greenwich Public Library card using this form.

Borrow an eBook copy or the audiobook version from GCDS here. GCDS students & faculty set up a Sora account with your GCDS Google log-in.

We look forward to welcoming the UE community back in September with activities around this inspiring read.
