9th and 10th Grade Independent Reading List

Thank you for seeking further information about the novels our students are offered as part of their English classes during their freshmen and sophomore years at Maynard High School.


Downloadable as a PDF below are the 49 Choice/Independent reading titles that students are offered by Maynard High School during their freshman and sophomore years.  All of the titles listed have been read by the English teachers who work with our freshmen and sophomores.


Each selection will be accompanied by a brief synopsis of the work and, in many case, selected critical reviews and notes about the author.  This introductory information was taken from the Amazon website. This information, along with further information contained on parental permission slips, should give you a sense of what the novel is about and whether or not it is an appropriate selection for the individual student reader.
