Books You Didn't Really Need to Read in Middle School

"Regardless of your current appreciation or disdain for literature, the books you have to read in middle school were not always necessary. There are, of course, exceptions, such as Eli Weisel's Night, a memoir that details Weisel's history as a Holocaust survivor and introduces many young students to the story of WWII. Additionally, every district approaches reading requirements differently - meaning your least-favorite novel from the early years of high school or later years of elementary is someone else's middle school experience. The person who approaches Anne of Green Gables as a too-cool-for-school middle schooler might not appreciate the story like a more comprehensive reader would."
