Summer Reading List

Incoming 12th grade students:


Black Boy by Richard Wright (autobiography) Lexile: 950


Black Boy is Richard Wright’s powerful account of his journey from innocence to experience in the Jim Crow South.  It is at once and unashamed confession and a profound indictment – a poignant and disturbing record of social injustice and human suffering.


The Invisible Man by H.G. Wells (science fiction) Lexile: 980


An atmosphere of ever-increasing suspense begins with the arrival of a mysterious stranger at an English village inn and builds relentlessly to the stark terror of a victim pursued by a maniacal invisible man.


The Maze Runner by James Dashner (science fiction) Lexile: 770


Sixteen-year-old Thomas wakes up with no memory in the middle of a maze and realizes he must work with the community in which he finds himself if he is to escape.


Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier (mystery) Lexile: 880


Set in Monte Carlo, the heroine is swept off her feet by the dashing widower Maxim de Winter and his sudden proposal of marriage. Orphaned and working as a lady's maid, she can barely believe her luck. It is only when they arrive at his massive country estate that she realizes how large a shadow his late wife will cast over their lives--presenting her with a lingering evil that threatens to destroy their marriage from beyond the grave.


A Separate Peace by John Knowles (fiction) Lexile: 1110


Two adolescents come to understand each other and themselves after a tragic accident.


The Awakening by Kate Chopin (fiction) Lexile: 960


This book tells of a woman’s abandonment of her family, her seduction, and her awakening to desires and passions that threaten to consume her.


The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls (non-fiction/memoir) Lexile: 1010


Constantly short on cash and food, the Walls family moves around the country frequently and tries to re-settle. Though the family is dysfunctional, the memoir communicates itself without condemning either of the Walls parents. Humor frequently imbues the work with a light-spirited tone.


*Brave New World by Aldous Huxley (science fiction) Lexile: 950


The story opens in London, nearly six hundred years in the future. Human life has been almost entirely industrialized — controlled by a few people at the top of a World State.


*Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stephenson (adventure) Lexile: 1100


Jim Hawkins is a young boy who lives at his parents’ inn, the Admiral Benbow, near Bristol, England, in the eighteenth century. An old sea captain named Billy Bones dies in the inn after being presented with a black spot, or official pirate verdict of guilt or judgment. Jim is stirred to action by the spot

and its mysterious, accurate warning of Billy’s death. Hastily, Jim and his mother unlock Billy’s sea

chest, finding a logbook and map inside which is wanted to by other pirates in search of the treasure.
