Book List for High school

This list is made for high school readers who are looking for something to read OUTSIDE of the classic literature already being taught in school.  These books may deal with tough issues, but they do not go against anything in our Catholic faith.

This list is constantly under construction with new titles, so be sure to check back with us regularly for new books!
