    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  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!
