Welcome, rising Grade 8 students!
In grade 8, we will start the year by exploring how literature helps young people find their voices and power. To prepare for this theme, you will choose one of the following novels below to read and enjoy. There is no written assignment over the summer. When we return in the fall, bring your book with you. We will use the book to practice understanding the theme and characterization.
We encourage you to take a look at each of these novels and see which is the best match for you! Although you are only required to read one novel, you are welcome to read more! (Note: For the March Trilogy, all three books are required)
