Summer Reading Lists 2016

A Note to Parents about the 9th Grade Summer Reading List:

I’ve received a few questions about the 9th grade reading list from the Mira Costa English Department.  The 9th grade summer reading list has been released and is available at this link mbmswaves.com  Your student will be expected to complete a writing project related to the book they choose during the upcoming school year.  The books on the list are all either 2016 Morris Award Winners or Finalists or 2016 Printz Award Winners. All books have been read and vetted by the English department at Mira Costa High School.  You can find the Printz Award information here and the Morris Award Information here.

Please be aware that several of the books on the list contain mature content.  High school brings a whole new level of maturity in the subject matter of the books.  We recommend that parents take an active role in evaluating the book(s) that their child chooses to read.  All of the books are reviewed at either www.goodreads.com (a great site for many book reviews) or www.commonsensemedia.org (a fantastic site and essential parenting tool for reviewing books, movies, video games, and more).
