Summer Reading for Peachtown

A Listmania! list by A. Cramer
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "Hey Peachtown! I thought this was the best way to list books and some comments. Have fun and just ask each other for other selections. I did not put on any books that I may teach this year. There are a million more books that I would put on (Percy Jackson, the Red Pyramid, any Roald Dalh book) but I thought this might be a good start. Enjoy! If anyone wants a personal recommendation, just email me!"
