Summer Reading Suggestions

If you haven't read...

The Fault in Our Stars coverThe Fault in Our Stars by John Green
Sixteen year old Hazel, who has cancer, meets Augustus at a kids-with-cancer support group and as they fall in love they both wonder how they will be remembered.
There's a good reason everyone loves this book. Terrific characters, realistic, not soppy. Effective.


I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings coverI Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou
Poet Maya Angelou chronicles her early life, focusing on her childhood in 1930s rural Arkansas, including her rape at the age of five, her subsequent years of muteness, and the strength she gained from her grandmother and Mrs. Bertha Flowers, a respected African-American woman in her town.
Maya Angelou just died, but her work never will.

Pillars of the Earth coverPillars of the Earth by Ken Follett
The ambitious prior of Kingsbridge, England, dreams of building the greatest Gothic cathedral in the world, and the struggle to construct it leads to a battle between good and evil in twelfth-century England.
Don't plan to do anything else when you read this book as you won't want to put it down. Really neat, too, learning
how the cathedral is built.

Wool coverWool by Hugh Hovey
In a toxic world, a community lives underground, when Sheriff Holston asks to leave and go outside, mechanic Juliette is appointed as the new sheriff and learns how badly her world is broken.
The first in a trilogy; you will be hooked.

Good lists to check:
