Summer Reading Blog

Welcome to the Young Adult Summer Reading Blog for BHS teachers. The field of Young Adult literature has really grown by leaps and bounds in recent years. There have been some tremendous works published for teens and I hope you'll enjoy reading the selections
we've chosen...it was tough to narrow it down to just 5. We tried to select a variety of titles covering different genres from historical to realistic fiction; award winners; books that might blend into your curriculum; and books to read just for pleasure. We have chosen 4 titles and a 5th optional book for those interested. The titles we've selected include The Boy in Striped Pajamas, Big Mouth and Ugly Girl, Looking for Alaska, Braid and Buried Onions (which is the optional title.) We will get you copies of the books and posting dates within the next few days.

Thanks for participating.
