I’ve been asking my students which books are “must reads” for my summer reading list this year.  This is what my 3rd-7th grade students have been saying, plus some books I added to my list myself:

Middle School students have recommended:if I stay

  • Cherub, by Robert Muchamore (series)
  • Timeless, by Alexandra Monir
  • If I Stay, by Gayle Forman (series)
  • Anything!! by Sonya Sones (they added the !!)
  • The Fault in Our Stars, by John Green

My 3-5th grade students recommended:the unwanteds

  • A Nest for Celeste, by Henry Cole
  • The Unwanteds, by Lisa McCann (series)
  • Peter and the Star Catchers, by Dave Barry (series)
  • Lauren Myracle’s Ten, Eleven, Twelve, Thirteen, Thirteen+One (series)

Here are some books I hope to be able to recommend to students next school year:same sun here
