Books 9th Grade
Books 9th Grade
This book list includes most of the best books for young adults in 9th grade and provides links to purchase many of the books, cliff notes, summaries, and, when available, their literature units. Few authors write books at this grade level. Most books, newspapers, and magazines are written at a far lower ability level, typically between a 4th-7th grade level. You’ll find that many of the novels written at the 9th grade level are classics. If you don’t find what you’re looking for on this list, you might try book lists around 9th grade, perhaps 8th or 10th. The difference, in terms of ability level, among books of these levels is minimal, and I would highly encourage you to look at all of these lists. Also, book levels are based on reading difficulty, not content or plot. Many books are highly readable but challenging in different ways, typically incorporating symbolism and other important literary devices. Again, it is entirely appropriate to read books above or below the reading level you are targeting if the book challenges the reader in other ways, perhaps in provocative way.
