Pairings with Classics
3 and 4. All 3 of these protagonists could relate with each other. Plus, concerning the latter, can you imagine a teacher saying, "Okay, class. We're going to be reading a book about a boy with mad cow disease."

2. Do I need to explain this one? The Book Thief is beautifully written and could be used as a cross-curriculum work, since it could relate to history, too! :)
3. With its questions on gender, sexuality, and love, as well as its commentary on religion, love, and acceptance, this book needs to be read by students!
4. With its examination of labels, I think a lot of teens could benefit from reading Ask the Passengers.
5. THIS BOOK. It's seriously so good. And in hindsight (meaning I already made the graphic, haha), this would be paired really well with Romeo and Juliet.
What books do you think should be included in high school curriculums?
