Hello 12th Graders taking College Level English,
Wow - Summer has arrived! We hope you had a great junior year. As you prepare to take college English in your senior year, you will read Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand as your summer read.
Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption is the account of Pacific prisoner of war (POW) Louis Zamperini as told to and researched by Laura Hillenbrand. The book follows Louie’s life from his birth and upbringing to his glorious career as an Olympic track star, to his time spent as a bombardier in WWII and as a Pacific POW, and through his long recovery back home in California.
Come prepared with notes on your reading. Mr. Barnello will assign an essay on the first week of class.
