What to read for book club?!?

For book clubs, we encourage you to read books that will help prepare you to be a high school reader--that means trying to read just above your level, which may be high level young adult fiction or perhaps an adult book. Or, maybe you want to do an author study where you read two books by the same person or a few books about the same topic (for example, The Crossover, The Final Four, and Boy21). We have lots of books in our library or you can peruse the lists below and try to find other titles at the public library, school library, or bookstore.

Remember, it is so important to be reading not just in school, but for two hours at home over the course of the week. Now is the time to build stamina for the reading you will be doing in high school.

If you have other recommendations or links to great lists, please list in the comments!
