2013 Texas Lone Star Reading List

2012 November 15
by Christina Manz

The 2013 Texas Lone Star Reading List has been announced! 

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.  Due to the diversity of this age range, Texas librarians should purchase titles on this list according to their individual collection policies.
