Summer Reading
Battle of the Books List
The Battle of the Books Battle is an annual competition hosted by North Hollywood High School, where many of our regional schools compete for fun. Everyone is welcome to join! All you need to do is start reading from this list. You don't have to read all the books to be part of the team. Most students read between 4 - 6 books individually. When we return from summer, you will be teamed up with three other members.

Visit your local LAPL website to see if they have these in stock or create an inter-library loan to get it to your nearest branch!
