HCMS serves students ranging from 6th to 8th grades. Therefore, we have diverse reading materials that vary for the age & maturity of our students.
The YA label found on library books:
- Indicates that a novel is young adult literature appropriate for teenage readers.
- Includes topics that are more mature or coming-of-age than a juvenile novel more appropriate for elementary students.
- Is the book equivalent of a PG-13 rating for movies.
If parents do not feel comfortable having their child read YA books, please convey to your child to choose titles without this label.
