Jeanne - what grade is that for?  11th?

My rising 10th grader has to read:

1. Guns Germs and Steel The Fates of Human Societies, and
2. Worlds of History, Volume One: To 1550: A Comparative Reader.
I wish she had some classic lit to read, that she would enjoy.

I switched schools so many times I never had to do the "summer reading" bs.  haha!

Margaret, "Guns, Germs, and Steel..." is a great book.  Hopefully, your child will like it.
