  • Fire & Heist, Sarah Beth Durst
  • Sweep: The Story of a Girl and Her Monster, Jonathan Auxier

*Note: Those students who plan to participate in the Junior Tome Reading Bowl during the 2020–2021 school year may wish to use their time over the summer to read more than one of these books. If so, I would recommend writing out a few potential reading bowl questions and answers so that you don’t forget the plot lines of the books. We can then use these questions for review before the online tests next year.
