Anxious to get books back in your students' hands?

School is about to start and so are those English novels!  With such uncertain times, it is understandable that parents may want students to have his/her own copy of the class novel to bring back and forth from school to home and/or to annotate.  Therefore, you can find a list of grade level books below.  These books can be found at any local or online book provider.
