White Lightning Books

Fast-paced, about 100 pages long each, and contemporary, these books will help your students strengthen their reading skills. White Lightning books are designed for students in middle school with primary grade reading skills and adolescent minds. They're going through great changes, defining themselves, and figuring out their place in the world, and they also have to develop stronger reading skills. These books show middle and high school students wrestling with problems small and large, dealing with a wide range of themes that middle school students will recognize.
