Summer Reading Recommendations

The HIJH summer reading recommendation books are chosen by looking through book award winners including the ALA award winners, looking at the Young Hoosier Book Award nominees for the upcoming year, looking at book reviews, and more to gather books that are high interest and will appeal to a variety of readers. The lists are certainly not required reading. Several of the books will push readers to grow in some way (i.e. learning about another culture or about history, developing empathy for others), but more than anything these lists are about trying to help or continue to develop a love of reading!


Our 2019 Lists: 




Young Hoosier Books

The Young Hoosier Book Award program is ran through libraries and schools all across the state of Indiana. Teachers and librarians nominate books, a committee selects the top choices, and then they are nominated for this award. Any student or teacher across the state that reads at least 5 titles can vote to help determine the winners of the awards in April! HIJH Students can also log their YHBA reads to hit different benchmarks and prizes.
