Wheeler 6 Summer Reading


Please read 3 books in total (print, ebook, and/or audiobook versions are all fine).

  • One must be from the following list (which will be discussed in a book group format in the Fall)
    • City of Ghosts by V.E. Schwab
    • My Life as an Ice Cream Sandwich by Ibi Zoboi
    • The Truth as Told by Mason Buttle by Leslie Connor
    • A High Five for Glen Burke by Phil Bildner
    • Bloom by Kenneth Oppel
  • Two additional novels of your choice (one could be a graphic novel if you’d like) — a great list for ideas is available here (except don’t read Roll of Thunder), but wherever you find books is fine!
