Incoming students are required to read Wonder by R.J. Palacio and The Julian Chapter by R.J. Palacio. Be sure to read Wonder and The Julian Chapter at the end of the summer. This way the books will be fresh in your mind when school begins. You'll need your copy of the books at school for at least the first week. You are welcome to use a library copy, but you must have it in your possession when school begins.
You must also read one book from the summer reading list compiled by the MCDS librarians. You will be delivering a book talk on this book, so be sure to mark a notable passage while you are reading with a post-it. Be ready to summarize the book to your peers. You should also have access to this book at the beginning of the year.
