Lindsay Junior High School Reads
Texas Lonestar Books!
The 7th and 9th graders at Lindsay Junior High are again reading the book selections on the Texas Lonestar Book List for 2015 - 2016. The Texas Lone Star 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. Due to the diversity of this age range, Texas librarians should purchase titles on this list according to their individual collection policies. Each book on the list has been favorably reviewed for grades 6, 7, or 8 in a professional review source.
