Welcome Junior and Seniors to the 2023 Summer Reading Program

Students who are going to be juniors or seniors for the 2023-2024 school year NOT taking AP English Literature or AP English Language and Composition are required to read ONE book from the two book titles. Please complete the assignment listed below.


Look over the two book titles and the supplemental links provided and choose the book that looks interesting to you. 

While reading your chosen book, please highlight, sticky note, or annotate for things you find effective/interesting about the author’s diction, syntax, detail, emphasis, writing style, and use of motifs (If needed, click on the terms to see definitions and additional information.).


After reading your chosen book, please write a response and answer the following questions.  Your response should be one page, double spaced, and a paragraph in length.  Please bring it to class on the first day of school.

  • What do you think the theme of the book is? 
  • How have the items you have marked helped to develop that theme?

Please contact Mrs. Vickrey at  if you have any questions.
