Mountain School Reads Over Solo

This semester, several students opted to bring books with them on Solo, a four day solo camping trip in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Here’s what some of them had to say about the books they read:

“Everyone needs to read The Fault in Our stars. It’s straight baller.” – Matt on The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

“It was an extremely well-written book. The author expertly intertwined history and sports in an epic tale about the 1936 Berlin Olypics.” – Annie on Boys In the Boat by Daniel James Brown

“This incredible true story encompasses resilience, bravery, athleticism, and the tumult of World War II. This book is a must read for anyone who knows how to read.” – Andrew on Unbroken by Lauren Hillenbrand

“The Things They Carried puts war and the effects of it into perspective. Its unpredictability kept me on my toes and wanting to read more.” – Hannah on The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien

“An amazing representation of Black family life in the 1940s and 1950s. It’s a well done examination of the religious aspect of the culture that is still accessible to everyone.” – Sam O. on Go Tell It On the Mountain by James Baldwin

“Emotional insight into the internal struggles of a complicated teenager in 1980s New York City. It was eye-opening and entertaining. It taught me about surface impressions.” – Annabella on Starboard Sea by Amber Dermont

Graduates, do you have any¬†recommendations for great books you’ve read recently?
