High School Book Lists
Summer Reading List 2014
Shared Custom Reading Lists
I compiled a middle school to high school reading list for my strong reader. We started this list in 6th grade and are in the middle of 7th grade right now. Most of the books on the list would be considered classics, but many contemporary novels are included as well. I like to read a synopsis of a book to determine if it is a good fit for my kid before assigning it and Wikipedia usually does a pretty good job with that. So for each book on this list you will find a link to the synopsis on Wikipedia if available as well as a link to Amazon.

I compiled all the book lists I have made on for Middle School. I hope this helps you find some great books to keep your middle school child reading happily this summer and all year long. My oldest year-old girl loved Hunger Games so much that she read the series 5 times. She liked Twilight also but was less devoted.
Alright listen up Book Nerds. Here are 17 books you probably hated in high school but ended up loving when you finally gave them a second chance:. Compassionate, dramatic, and deeply moving, To Kill A Mockingbird takes readers to the roots of human behavior — to innocence and experience, kindness and cruelty, love and hatred, humor and pathos. Now with over 18 million copies in print and translated into forty languages, this regional story by a young Alabama woman claims universal appeal. Harper Lee always considered her book to be a simple love story.

And that question is: should young adults read Young Adult fiction? And what counts as Young Adult fiction anyway? It what sense do all of these very different kinds of bookssome very complex and challenging, some very much less soqualify as "teen novels"? Perhaps some of the fuzziness about quality and appropriateness comes from the fact that many "Top-whatever" lists like NPR's are compiled by readers, of all ages. However, what would such a list look like if strictly compiled by educators?
