Summer Reading 

Summer Reading Program

 

Welcome to Trinity’s New One School, One Read

The English Department and the Library Media Center are pleased to announce that our 2021-22 summer reading selection is The Lovely and the Lost by Jennifer Lynn Barnes.

As part of our program, all students will read The Lovely and the Lost.  This thriller follows Kira, who struggles with human interaction but excels at dog training.  When she and her adoptive family are called to find a missing child, Kira and her favorite dogs take center stage.  Kirkus Reviews calls it, “An engaging, clever, suspenseful story in which readers—especially dog-loving teens—will easily lose themselves.”

The following key terms are taken from the essential terms glossary for AP Capstone.  Because you will be using them continuously over the next two years, it is important that you take time to familiarize yourself with them early on. It will be your responsibility to study the terms and definitions provided over the summer months. I encourage you to make flashcards and/or utilize Quizlet.  When we convene in August, we will have a quiz on these terms sometime during the first week of class.
