For the second nine weeks, our students will be reading a nonfiction novel of at least 250 pages. These novels should not be autobiographies or biographies, because that assignment will be for next nine weeks. Students have been finding it difficult to choose a nonfiction novel of this length, and so may need to visit the public library or other venues to find such a book. I have included below a small sample of the type of novel they should look for. This is not an exclusive list by any means, just a few which I have seen.
Bomb by Steve Sheinkin (or many of his other works)
The Nazi Hunters by Neal Bascomb
Max by Boaz Yakin
Titanic: Voices from the Disaster by Deborah Hopkinson
The President Has Been Shot!: The Assassination of John F. Kennedy by James SwansonThe Dark Game: True Spy Stories by Paul Janeczko
