Inspired by the hugely popular Hunger Games series, the Okemos Teen Advisory Board decided to create their own game of survival, The Book Wars. However, the players in this game would not be kids. They would be books. Six members of our board created a display featuring all six tributes (or books). Patrons are voting for their favorite and, in turn, determine which book will survive. Who do you think will win?
