Summer Reading Assignment

2019 Summer Reading

Westfield Reads!

All Westfield students, teachers, and staff will be reading the same book this summer:                                                      

Long Way Down, By Jason Reynolds

Read this exciting novel before the first day of next school year!  Sixty seconds—the time it takes for Will to decide whether or not he’s going to murder the guy who killed his brother.  As he rides the elevator from the 7th floor to the lobby, Will is confronted by the ghosts of his past who force him to think about the consequences of his ultimate decision.  Will he avenge his brother’s death and change his own life forever?

Please note that depending on the courses in which you are enrolled next year (especially Honors and AP), you may have additional summer assignments.  It is YOUR responsibility to make sure you understand and complete the requirements for all classes you are taking.  If you have questions, ask your English teacher.
