For this year's OBOA you will have a choice of books, either fiction or nonfiction. All we ask is that the book you choose from one of the selected topics have a focus on Social Justice. To help you pick the best book, look at this list of recommendations from the One Book One Amity committee and the high school librarians. (Please don't pick a book that is already part of the AHS curriculum.) Questions? Watch the OBOA 2021-22 video.
