Summer Reading Assignment

Each incoming eighth grader of Good Hope Middle School who is scheduled to take advanced ELA for the 2024-2025 school year must read a fictional book of your choice over the summer. The book must be a minimum of 250 pages and grade-appropriate. No elementary level books will be accepted. Your book must be parent-approved which means it will also be school-appropriate.

You should cite textual evidence as support when explaining each conflict. Choose one of the conflicts to compare and contrast to a conflict in another book that you have read or to a conflict that you have experienced in your own life. This written essay will be due Monday, August 19, 2024. You will also discuss these conflicts with your teacher.
