ONLINE ORDERING LINK
Link to share with students and their families to order Varian's books: www.tatteredcover.com/book-list-varian-johnson Please make sure anyone ordering online includes the name of your school in the Notes section of the order and if they'd like to pick up the book from you at the school. Please DO NOT give a book to someone who says they ordered online unless they have the printed confirmation. PLEASE KEEP THIS! You'll need to include these confirmations when returning the leftover books so you won't be charged for them! If they do ask you for a book without a confirmation, just email me the name of the student and parent's name and I can check.
