The Texas Lone Star Reading List is a recommended reading list developed by public and school librarians from the Young Adult Round Table. The purpose of the list is to encourage students in grades 6, 7, or 8 to explore a variety of current books. The Lone Star List is intended for recreational reading, not to support a specific curriculum.
I look forward to this list each year. I have already read:
Airborn. Oppel, Kenneth. 2004Eos.
Blood Red Horse. Grant, K. M. 2004 Walker & Co.
Bridesmaid. Abbott, Hailey. 2005 Delacorte.
Shakespeare's Secret. Broach, Elise. 2005 Henry Holt.
I am looking forward to Ranger's Apprentice: Ruins of Gorlan. Flanagan, John. 2005 Philomel.
