What Did Students Read in 2020?

I asked some some students their favorite book they read this year. Some were intense, others were fun adventures.

Brave New World by Aldous Huxley

"It reflects our society so well. It's so clearly dystopian, and we consider it extreme, but it is near exactly the themes present in our society today. It's almost like watching history repeat itself."

Baseball Dads by Matthew S. Hiley

"I'm only 3 chapters in. But it's very fun cause it reminds me of my dad. When I was in little league this was exactly how it was .It brings a lot back from my childhood cause I was in little league for 8 years."

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

"I was recommended this book a long time ago and told it was like Harry Potter but so much better. I love stories about magic and knew I would fall in love with the characters. The world Rainbow Rowell has built is so intricate and intriguing."

The 5 people You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom

"It was really good. It was kind of sad but the main thing was that he was making peace with everyone in his past. Our teacher had us read it. It's not usually what I would read; it was really deep."

The Search for WondLa by Tony DiTerlizzi

"I really like the sci-fi and the graphic novel style of the book. In between the chapters, the characters will go to a new place and the scene will be there illustrated. It's about a girl who thinks she's the only person left on earth, but in her world, people live underground in these fancy modern homes."

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"


I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.
