 Recommended Reading 2020-2021 - Secondary 1

The following is a list of websites for parents providing recommended reading of both popular and award-winning fiction and non-fiction for Secondary 1 students.

Please remember that most public libraries offer e-book loans. Many of the titles you find on these lists should be available as a download from your local library. If you do not have a membership, it may be possible to take out a membership remotely, or by phone. Give them a call and check it out!
