Summer Reading

J.A. Fair System Magnet High School Department of English

Recommended 2011 Summer Reading


We have chosen books that are not only interesting  but also grade-level appropriate. The English Department encourages students to read their grade level recommended books and to read a wide variety of books that will pique  their interests and provide enjoyment. 

Have a happy and safe summer. We will see you in the fall when we can discuss your summer reading in our classes.
