List of Summer Reading Book Summaries for 2017

As we turn the page from late summer to fall, kids may be scrambling to turn some pages too and complete their summer reading. At Scattered Books, we chose some of our favorite books that appear on many required or suggested summer reading lists for Briarcliff Manor, Chappaqua, Armonk and other schools in Westchester County NY and around the U.S. Here’s a quick summary of each summer reading book and a few questions for thought. Feel free to e-mail us with any questions at!
