Summer Reading

2021 Summer Reading List

This year our Annual Book Fair will be online as well as an outdoor in-person affair hosted by Scholastic, click here to access the online component.  The outdoor Book Fair event will be subject to change based on health guidance, concerns, and conditions leading up to our planned dates, June 7th to the 11th.  

Due to the terms of this Fair, they do not customize titles available and are limited in providing titles that I suggest for summer reading.  However, an effort was made to suggest some of their titles.  My lists are based on well-reviewed titles from various publishers.  Scholastic provides quality titles that you may choose to read too!

The online availability of the mandatory reading is limited to 3 titles: Savvy, Divergent and Brown Girl DreamingCrossover and We Were Liars will not be available onlineA limited number of Print copies of all the mandatory titles will be on sale during the in-person fair. 

This Summer Reading List covers all grades and are “recommended” suggestions. Please note that I have provided Lexile Scores, Genre, and marked some titles for “Mature Readers”.                        

Thank you for your support, Mr. Posner
