Battle of the Books (BOTB) is a regional competition in which students work in teams of 2-4 people to read and study a set of 8 novels over the course of several months. In order to prepare for the competitions, students meet regularly to discuss the book and answer practice trivia questions. Once students have mastered their set of books, they participate in building and regional competitions!
