GHS Innovation Lab Required Summer Reading 2019

The Innovation Lab teachers love reading! We will join you in reading the summer reading, and we can’t wait to find out what you think!

All Innovation Lab students will read two books for summer reading – one assigned grade level text listed below and a self-selected text. For your free choice, we recommend choosing from past Greenwich Reads Together books or from a list of age-appropriate, award-winning books. ( Questions? Contact

Read widely. Read well. Enjoy!


You must take notes on both books. The notes should help you remember your books so that you can successfully write about and discuss them when school begins.  They must be your own notes, not printed information from the Internet.

→ Your notes should include:

  • Book title & author
  • Identification of a few significant characters and traits
  • 3- 5 significant quotations from throughout the book (include page numbers)
  • A reflective paragraph analyzing what the book means to you with 3+ specific text references
