"Intellectual distinction is a necessary but not a sufficient condition for election to a Rhodes Scholarship. Selection committees are charged to seek excellence in qualities of mind and in qualities of person which, in combination, offer the promise of effective service to the world in the decades ahead.

What do you think?  I'll be back soon with my boy's series to see what you think of those.

I sooooo wish we lived closer! I think the list is great. My girls love them all, except we haven't heard of 9th grade book. That will be our next library checkout.

We have a book club that meets once a month. The kids suggest the titles and then we choose the book from a hat.

I'd be interested in any other 'recommended' books for 13 and up kids. I often have at least one teen who can't come up with a book.

We've read I Am David, A Wrinkle in Time, the Alcott books, The Neverending Story, and a Sherlock Holmes book.
