On April 3rd, 2013, ten students from the PPCHS Book Club participated in the Broward County Schools Battle of the Books academic competition.  Our PPCHS team came in 4th place this year!  Students from Broward County high schools competed to see who could quickly recall details from the 15 books on the Florida Teens Read list. Students in teams of four had 10 seconds to recognize a quote from one of the books.  The competition was held at the South Plantation High School in Plantation and media specialists from all over Broward were there with students representing their schools.  Each student received a Battle of the Books t-shirt and a book!  We all had a lot of fun!
