Summer reading assignments

Does your child's school assign books for students to read over the summer?

Do you review titles and contents before your child undertakes the assignment?

You may be amazed at the kind of social indoctrination your young students are being told to immerse themselves in.

For example, Almost Perfect by Brian Katcher is among the books rising 11th graders get to choose from at at least one Gwinnett County, Georgia public high school.

Here's part of how pitches Almost Perfect:

Whether you’re trans, gay, lesbian, bi, queer, questioning, or straight, this winner of the Stonewall Children’s & Young Adult Literature Award will make you marvel at the beauty of human connection and the irrepressible nature of love. Everyone has that one line they swear they’ll never cross, the one thing they say they’ll never do. We draw the line. Maybe we even believe it. Sage Hendricks was my line. Logan Witherspoon befriends Sage Hendricks at a time when he no longer trusts or believes in people. As time goes on, he finds himself drawn to Sage, pulled in by her deep, but sexy feminine voice and her constant smile. Eventually Logan’s feelings for Sage grow so strong that he can’t resist kissing her. Moments later, he wishes he never had. Sage finally discloses her big secret: she was born a boy...
