  • Mood:

So I have to read a book for my honors English 10 class over the summer, and do a dialectical journal on it.

I have four books to choose from.

A Separate Peace by John Knowles - a story of two friends at boarding school during World War II--one of the most starkly moving parables ever written about the dark forces that brood over the tortured world of adolescence-.

I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou- Angelou's autobiography of her childhood in Arkansas.

Fallen Angels by Walter Dean Myers- Seventeen-year-old Richie Perry, just out of his Harlem high school, enlists in the Army in the summer of 1967 and spends a devastating year on active duty in Vietnam

And then The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan, but I read this already, it was amazing, but I want to read something new.

Anyone have any suggestions?
