Summer Reading 2020

This summer LSDO middle school students should self select and read at least one book. Below is the 2020-2021 SC Junior Book Award Nominee list as a starting point. Students can also choose from the 2020-2021 SC Children’s Books Award Nominee list. Eighth grade and English I Honors students can choose a book from the SC Young Adult Book Award Nominee list, but it is not a required list. **Notice for Parents/Guardians: Young Adult titles often cover mature subject matter and may include strong language. Parents/guardians should review the chosen title to determine if the book seems appropriate for their student reader.**
