Summer Reading Assignment

The Northlake Christian High School English Department requires all students to read ONE novel over the course of the summer. The assigned novel, which can be obtained either in paper form or on a personal reading device, is based on the class the student will be entering the next school year. As they read, each student will complete a Reading Log by closely following the attached instructions. The Reading Log will be turned in electronically at the beginning of the student’s first English class, and students will take a test on the novel on the second day of class.
