2020 GMS Summer Reading

Important Info about Summer Reading!
This summer, because of limited availability of many titles through the public library, please see the addenda to our lists.  You'll find titles that the Canton Public Library has researched as popular young adult fiction that ARE widely available on Hoopla. As long as the organizers/summer work for the novels are complete, you get credit for reading books that are not on the main list!!!

About our Theme

This summer, our theme is One World, Many Stories.  We have the common experience of living in this one world, and we have many stories to share about that experience.  We hope that our text choices reflect the diversity in those stories, and that as readers, you will consider how your own "stories" compare to the ones you enjoy during your summer reading.

While there is no required graphic organizer for the high school summer reading work, students may want to use the organizer provided for entering 8th graders, as it will provide you with a place to record your thoughts while you read, so you are prepared for the Book Club discussions when you get to your Freshman English class!
