VocabCafe' series consists of 4 books:
IM for MurderOperation High school
Summer of St Nick
Each VocabCafe book contains 300 words that are specifically chosen to aide in the development of language skills by using definition, repetition, and reinforcement. The novellas are wholesome and the original story lines contain no foul language, no illicit adult subject matter, and no sorcery.
The books were read by my 13 year old daughter and my 12 year old son. My son doesn't really enjoy reading as much as he once did, so he wasn't very interested in them, but the vocabulary words were challenging. My daughter thought the stories were an easy read, although she didn't like the ending of a couple of the books as she felt they were abrupt & incomplete.
The vocabulary words are in bold print throughout the books, and the definition to each word can be found at the bottom of each page. There is also a word review at the end of each chapter as well as an index of all the words in the back of the book. Although it will be some time before my children will take the SAT's, I feel confidant that by reading these books, and expanding their vocabulary, my children will have a jump start in their preparation for them.
Here's a sneak peek at some of the vocabulary words:
