Summer Required Reading

The DePaul Prep English Department believes the purpose of summer reading is to... learn to love reading! Our summer reading lists and assignments are designed to give you the opportunity to find different books you like, while also preparing you for the reading and thinking you will do in English next school year. 

Below are the grade-level specific English Summer Reading Guides for Summer 2022. Choose the guide based on the English class you are taking next school year. All summer reading guides explain the books as well as any assignments due the first week of the 2022-23 school year. It is your responsibility to fully complete all steps in your class's guide. If you have questions about summer reading during the summer, please email your English teacher listed on your schedule. If you have a question but don't know who your teacher is, please email Ms. Galvez, the English Department Chair, at
