Suggested Reading for Summer 2020

Ortho's English teachers have a suggested reading list for you this summer. Normally, there is a required summer reading assignment for each grade level, but due to COVID-19, we have modified the assignment into suggested reading for personal enrichment as you head into the next grade. The attached PDF includes links to a PDF of each book, so no need to buy the book unless you want to.

Also please feel free to reach out to Ms. Hollis (our school librarian) via email ( or Schoology message if you need ideas for reading or any help accessing books!

Happy Reading!
