What are Brewster students reading this summer? We asked a few bobcats to share what they decided to read during their summer vacations:
The book I’m reading right now is Michael Lewis’ Flash Boys, a book about the technological side of Wall Street. I spent the majority of last summer interning for a Wall Street firm and took an interest in the lesser-known parts of the financial world. Flash Boys follows a team of technology experts as they try to protect the average American investor from firms trying to take advantage of them. There’s a good bit of technological terminology, but learning about the ways Wall Street banks operate and the colorful language of Wall Street traders makes this book an interesting read.

This summer I read The Fault in Our Stars by John Green which is about two teenagers struggling with cancer who fall in love and help each other through the trials and tribulations of life with cancer. I chose the book because my younger sister recommended it and the plot seemed interesting.

The summer has always been a time when I catch up on the latest reads and all the current movies. So this summer I killed two birds with one stone and dove into the Divergent series, and may I say it was a fantastic read. Whether it was sitting on the beach, or during long car rides, Veronica Roth has me captivated from page to page, chapter to chapter, and book to book. It was absolutely entrancing. It had the perfect combination of action, and romance, while also keeping real the true facts about growing up. All the characters pop off the page, and I felt like I was right there with them, jumping off buildings, or full on sprinting from the enemy. All these books from Divergent, to Allegiant, to Insurgent were absolutely amazing. I couldn’t get enough. The Divergent series is amazingly written and absolutely a recommendation that I make to all of my friends!
