Middle & Upper School Summer Books

Mark Luce, English Department Chair
The middle & upper school summer reading program reminds students of the joys of the imagination, the thrill of adventure, and the necessity of compassion. This year's list features classics and recent prize-winners, reliably unreliable narrators and flights of fancy.
Students will engage with novels serious and challenging, hysterical and shocking, innovative and philosophical. 

We ask students in grades 6-12 to make sure the reading gets done before classes begin in August and we encourage parents to read the books that their children are reading. A conversation about a book, perhaps over dinner, maybe in the car, can be a great way to connect and share perspectives.

The summer reading list is available here. Please purchase the title by its ISBN, and we encourage you to support local booksellers when possible. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mark Luce, English Department Chair.
