Oh, I read that book! (TKAMB). I hate all the books we've read in school so far, they're all boring adaptations of historical fiction books. But we get to do Of Mice And Men next year, so that'll be cool.

I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

Of Mice and Men is really good. And really sad. DX

I think that we are going to read To Kill A Mockingbird in English. Also I loved The Giver when we read it in 7th grade.

Oh, I loved that book, though it seems more like the kind of book you would read in 4th or 5th grade

Eh in some parts yes, but in some other parts (Like that whole chapter on how the society handles Puberty/Sex stuff with the teens) it wouldn't have been good for 4th and 5th.

Besides that though, the "assessed reading level" is probably lower than 7th grade overall. Also, I think they sort of skirted around that topic, I read it when I was about that age and didn't see anything shocking.
