2019-2020 Required Summer Reading

Following is the required summer reading for students who will be attending Millbrook for the 2019-2020 school year; this list should be read according to the form students will be entering for the upcoming school year. This reading is assessed at the very beginning of the school year, and so it is important that your child completes it.

Please make arrangements to purchase these books at your local bookstore or via an online bookstore of your choosing. They are not available through our online bookstore. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
