Reading Suggestions

  • The AC Stelle English department encourages all parents to assist their children in making book choices as a novel that may be appropriate for an eighth grader may not appropriate for a sixth grader.  If parents have further questions, please contact your child's English teacher.

    Use the links to the right to find books that might be just right for you.
