Summer Book List

Summer Book List

Summer, after all, is a time when wonderful things can happen to quiet people. For those few months, you’re not required to be who everyone thinks you are, and that cut-grass smell in the air and the chance to dive into the deep end of a pool give you a courage you don’t have the rest of the year. You can be grateful and easy, with no eyes on you, and no past. Summer just opens the door and lets you out.

Deb Caletti

Summer is a magical season. It means no school, the shining sun, picnics and visiting family and friends. Adventures always happen in the summer; camping, swimming, exploring and visiting the beach. Why not celebrate summer with this great selection of books. Let the stories give you ideas for your own summer experiences.
