What book would you recommend to readers this summer, and why?

“Gary Paulsen’s book ‘Hatchet.’ The reason I like it is because it’s an easy read and it’s not too complicated. It has a very normal plot line, and I just like it.”

— Jason Lindsey, microbiology junior

“I’d recommend ‘The Kite Runner. ’It’s really relevant, it’s really sweet, it’s based on a true story and it’s very well written.”

— Kaitlyn Brewer, sophomore studying agriculture management and education

“‘American Sniper’ by Chris Kyle because it really shows what the soldiers go through in foreign countries, and you [gain] respect for them, and it’s a really good book by the guy it happened to.”

— Marcos Perez, agricultural business


“‘Freak the Mighty’ because it teaches you a lot about, like, being more confident in yourself and being more, you know, more optimistic about life.”

— Pablo Lewis, performing arts junior

“I think some great reading for all these college students out here would be ‘With the Old Breed’ by Eugene Sledge. I like the way they describe the whole island-hopping campaign; it’s really inspirational and I think Eugene Sledge was a great writer.”

— Raymond Charles Paragian, history junior
