Last evening I was talking (maybe arguing) with my 13 year old son about reading a book this summer. His school "requires" two summer reads. Since many of you teach kids this age, I was hoping you could suggest some terrific books that will hook him. He is a bit of a history buff. In fifth grade he read every World War II book in the school library! In Sixth grade they told him to try a different genre. I'm not sure if it was that or the XBox that made him decide reading isn't his thing.
Thank you so much for any ideas you may have!
