The books they make us read in high school are AWFUL! I decided that we should make a list of good books with deep meanings that we should have high school students read. Please contribute!!

Unfortunately, The Hunger Games has entered my school's curriculum.

Has it really? While a good book [in my opinion], I don't see its place in school..


message 3: by Tima (new)

Tima I removed The Help by Kathryn Stockett as it was listed twice (at spot 4 & 21). Left the book in spot 4 and removed the one at 21.


message 4: by Renee (new)

Renee I couldn't get past chapter 6 of The Hunger Games, but I saw the movie (which I also didn't enjoy). As much as I didn't like it, I think the themes and relationships and the heroism of Katniss are very interesting and I can see it being a good thing for high school students to study. I have no problem with it being on the list. There are a few books on this list that I love to death but wouldn't put them on a high school curriculum.

Sunny Some of these ARE part of the curriculum; and some of them should be add to the middle-school (The Giver,Number the Stars), not the high school curriculum.
