Mrs. Ripp's Crazy Reading List

It is no lie that I love to read, in fact, as my students know it is one of my biggest ultimate pleasures.  So it was no surprise to them when I showed them a picture of the reading pile next to my bed waiting for me; it's huge to say the least and it keeps growing.

So with no fanfare, here are the books I will be relaxing with this summer:

  • Dead End in Norvelt by Jack Gantos
  • The Water Castle by Megan Frazer Blakemore
  • Radio Road by Jake Henderson
  • I am Number Four by Pittacus Lore
