Virginia Readers' Choice

The Benton Middle School library is proud to announce its participation in The 2015-2016 Virginia Readersí Choice Program. The purpose of the program is to encourage young readers to- become better acquainted with contemporary books with outstanding literary appeal, to broaden studentsí awareness of literature as a life-long pleasure and to honor favorite books and their authors.

Each year the Virginia State Reading Association publishes a reading list for the middle school level. Every spring a book from that list is selected by the popular vote of participating students to receive an award from the association.

To become eligible to vote, the student must read at least four of the nominated books in their entirety. To provide proof that the book was read, the student took an on-line reading check quiz.

The middle school reading list for 2015-2016 includes the following titles:

The Boy in the Wooden Box by Leon Leyson

Counting by 7s by Holly Sloan

Half a Chance by Cynthia Lord

The President Has Been Shot!: The Assassination of John F. Kennedy by James L. Swanson
