Book Riot's 50 Must-Read Books Set in Schools

"Depending on who you ask, school can be exciting or tortuous, a series of adventures or an endless parade of banalities, a place one looks back on with fond nostalgia or one which they count their lucky stars to have escaped. Schools are rich with characters: students and teachers, principals and administrators, professors and bureaucrats. It is no wonder, then, that there is such a wealth of books set in school. From kindergarten to college campuses, there is no shortage of different stories to tell."
