2021 Summer Reading

Cover of The Book Theif



The English Department has released the summer reading assignment for all grades. The assignments are designed to:

  • Encourage a lifelong habit of reading
  • Prevent the "summer slide" that occurs between May and August
  • Ignite the literary conversation among students and between teachers and students
  • Encourage students to improve their interaction with texts and constructing meaning 

All rising 10th, 11th, and 12th graders must purchase a paper copy of their assigned book. Rising 9th graders will have access to PDFs of assigned short stories.
