SHS: Recommended Reading

These are some of our favorite books to recommend. They cover a wide range of interests, reading levels, and subject matter, some of which is appropriate only for adult readers. If you have concerns about difficulty or appropriateness, please consult with your school or local librarian.

We encourage our students to read for pleasure over the summer. For a sample of the research endorsing pleasure reading, please go to: "The Benefits of Reading For Pleasure"

Though we are proud of the books in our required curriculum, we would like to see our students broaden their reading repertoire over the summer rather than read the books we will be studying with them the following year.
