We all remember our high school literary staples. Who could forget reading The Great Gatsby or Scarlet Letter at a tiny desk in a 10th grade English class? These books are important and unforgettable; however, in their flurry to finish 50 pages of Animal Farm in one night, high school students tend to gloss over the modern pieces and even classics that do not often find a spot in their high school syllabi or the usually repetitive lists of “10 Books to Read Before College.” OverDrive is here to both remind you of and introduce you to these brilliant books that are not only integral to a high school student’s literary repertoire, but also, and perhaps more importantly, fun to read.

And even if, like me, college is an increasingly distant memory for you, or if college was never a stop on your particular path, a good book recommendation is always an exciting thing. I may even be more exciting now – let the high schoolers worry about expanding their ‘literary repertoire.’ We can read for fun!
