Summer reading is a way to foster in students a love of reading as well as expose them to the genres of literature that will be covered in
their English classes. We have provided the students with a variety of title selections so there will be something for everyone. Summer
reading is optional for students at Florence High School enrolled in regular English classes. Students enrolled in Accelerated and
Advanced Placement English are required to complete the assigned summer reading.
