    Each year children, young adults, teachers, and librarians around the United States select their favorite recently published books for the “Choices” reading lists. These lists are broken down by age and grade level; and include the title, author, and a brief summary.

There’s no special order, and you don’t have to do everything listed. Just pick the ones that look interesting — or think of your own ideas for summertime reading fun.
