My sister, also a language arts/social studies teacher and avid reader, asked what books I would want a college bound high schooler to have read. A delightful question, fun to think over. Mine is a quirky list. I don't read much fiction, so only a few. And perhaps you will discern a thematic connection of those novels to the topics of the non-fiction selections. These are not the best books, by any stretch of the imagination. They cover topics, themes and places that I would like my own children to at least know about, and that I always wanted my political science undergraduates to think about. And they cover them in a fashion readily accessible to a good high school reader.
Feel free to answer back, add to the list, etc.
