All students are required to read during the summer. The more books you read during the summer, the better you'll do in school. Freshmen are to read We Beat the Street and The Secret Life of Bees, if you are enrolled in honors English. The 10th graders will be reading The Translator and The Old Man and the Sea, if you're taking honors English. The 11th grade literature classes will read The Art of Racing in the Rain and In Cold Blood. If you're taking honors literature, you also need to read Blaze. The seniors can choose between Frankenstein: Prodigal Son, Jerk California, Going Bovine, Brave New World or The Last Lecture.
