    INTRODUCTION
     
    The Lone Star Reading List is a list of 20 books for middle school students chosen by a committee of Texas teachers and librarians. Books are selected based on mainly on their ability to appeal to a broad and varied audience of middle school readers.


    ABOUT THE
    LONE STAR LIST

    Having a book selected for the Lone Star list is a prestigious honor for the featured authors. The books on the list are not meant to satisfy curriculum requirements or to teach particular lessons that adults want to pass on to teens. These books are chosen simply because they are GREAT books that teens would enjoy reading for FUN!

    BOOKS ARE CHOSEN?


    Many books chosen for the Lone Star list have become bestsellers for teens (and sometimes for adults, too!), and several have even been made into movies. Past Lone Star books have included Twilight by Stephanie Meyer, Holes by Louis Sachar, Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling and The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.
