2015 Summer Reading List Grade 10

Members of the English department, along with the JBS librarians, revise the summer reading list regularly to maintain a selection that reflects diverse interests, periods and styles.  Each student must be prepared to bring his or her summer reading texts to class for% the opening days of the school year, when students will complete some exercises that require reflection on those texts. In order to get the most out of summer reading, each reader should make his or her book selections with care.  We encourage students to talk with English teachers or librarians about individual books, and to consult professionally published reviews while deciding which books to read.  We also encourage students to bring suggestions for additions to future summer reading lists to the attention of the English department.
