SOHS Summer Reading Invitation
The English Department invites students from all grade levels to select a book of their choice to complete the summer reading assignment this year.
Please select a book that is appropriate for high school. You should not have read this book before, either in class or independently. You can choose fiction or nonfiction novels, graphic novels, or plays. Essay and short story collections are also okay.
Please complete the book prior to the first day of school. Your English teacher will ask you to write a reflection on your summer reading selection in the beginning of the school year.
