Lone Star Reading List


   Texas Lone Star Reading List


The Texas Lone Star list is a recommended reading list developed by public and school librarians from the Young Adult Round Table. The purpose of the list is to encourage students in grades 6, 7, or 8 to explore a variety of current books. The Lone Star list is intended for recreational reading, not to support a specific curriculum.  Each book on the list has been favorably reviewed for grades 6, 7, or 8 in a professional review source.
