Recommended Reading

These tools may help you narrow your choices further;  Novelist Plus is an excellent tool for finding a “read-alike” — a book similar to a title you’ve already enjoyed.

Remember that you are welcome to recommend books for the teacher-librarian to purchase; talk to Ms. Burleson, put your book request in the binder at the circulation desk, or make a request online here.
